SUFC Poleon to make dream debut?

SUFC Poleon to make dream debut?

Sheffield United are back in League One action this afternoon looking to make it three wins in a week when they welcome Colchester United to Bramall Lane.

The Blades enjoyed wins at Shrewsbury Town and Bury and are now hot on the heels of the automatic promotion places.

With Tranmere Rovers losing on Friday night, Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers not in action today, a win for Sheffield United would see them climb into the top two.

Colchester come to Bramall Lane also in form. The U`s have won three of their last four games, this coming after a club record nine straight defeats.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have Sheffield United at 4/6 to claim the three points. Colchester are 4/1 to take the points back to Essex whilst it is 11/4 on the draw.

The 2-0 win at Bury on Tuesday night saw Jonathan Forte and Jamie Murphy open their accounts for the club since signing in January and they are both 5/1 to score the opening goal.

They have added winger Dominic Poleon to their ranks this week from Leeds United and he is 11/2 to mark his debut with the first goal.

Freddie Sears is in good goalscoring form for the visitors. Sears netted his fourth goal in five games in their home win over Preston North End last weekend and he is 10/1 to open the scoring this afternoon.

Former Sheffield Wednesday striker Clinton Morrison is sure to receive a warm reception this afternoon from the Bramall Lane faithful. Morrison netted in the 1-1 draw at Colchester earlier in the season to silence them and he is 9/1 to score first this afternoon.
