There’s a sense of optimism at Sheffield United following news that the Blades have attracted investment from a wealthy Saudi prince and with improvements to the squad apparently high on the new co-owner’s agenda, David Weir’s side could look somewhat stronger in the coming months.
However, at present, they’re lacking goals and have been particularly disappointing on the road so it’s easy to oppose them as they prepare for a South Yorkshire derby showdown with Rotherham.
Still unbeaten after five matches, the newly promoted Millers have made an excellent start and they look decent value at 8/5 with BetVictor to get the better of their neighbours.
Crawley meanwhile, kick-started their campaign last weekend with a stunning victory at promotion chasing Peterborough and at odds of 19/20 (William Hill) they can frank that form as they host winless Gillingham.
Rotherham and Crawley double – 4/1 (bet365)
