SUFC Collins to give Blades advantage?

SUFC Collins to give Blades advantage?

Sheffield United and Yeovil Town go head-to-head in the League One play-off semi-final over two legs, starting with the first leg at Bramall Lane on Friday night.

United come into the game with just two wins in their last twelve games and they have failed to score in seven of those.


Despite their recent form, SkyBet make them 21/20 favourites to go into the second leg with a lead.

Yeovil lost two of their final three games in the regular season and have injury concerns in defence.

The Glovers are 13/5 to go back to Huish Park ahead in the tie whilst it is 23/10 on the draw.

United are struggling for goals. Dave Kitson is the clubs leading goalscorer with 12 goals this season and they will be hoping he can find his goalscoring form. Kitson is 9/2 to score the first goal.

Defender Neil Collins scored the only goal of the game when they met at Yeovil earlier in the season. Collins is 20/1 to score the opener.

Paddy Madden and James Hayter have led the attack for Yeovil this season.

Madden has scored 23 goals this season and he scored both goals in Yeovil`s 2-0 win at Bramall Lane in January. Madden is 9/2 to score the first goal.

Hayter joined from Doncaster Rovers in the summer and he has fond memories of the League One play-offs having scored the only goal of the final when Doncaster beat Leeds United 1-0 in 2008.

Hayter has netted 15 times this season and he is 11/2 to score the opener.
