Matchday 15 of the EFL Championship will have Sheffield United hosting Blackpool at Bramall Lane on Saturday.
The hosts are coming off a 3-1 loss at the hands of Stoke City. Liam Delap, Phil Jagielka, and Ben Wilmot scored goals as the Potters cruised to victory. With 24 points, Sheffield is still in first place at the top of the standings, tied with Norwich City and QPR.
In contrast, Blackpool’s most recent game saw them triumph 3-1 at home over Watford. First-half goals from Gary Madine and Imran Louza appeared to force a tie at the end of the first half.
However, following the half, a double by Jerry Yates helped his team earn all possible points. With 15 points from 13 games and the victory, the Seasiders moved up to 19th in the standings.

Sheffield Utd vs Blackpool live stream and TV channel
Unfortunately, the match will not be available on TV.
Enda Stevens, Max Lowe, Jack O’Connell, Jack Robinson, Ciaran Clark, and John Fleck are just a few of the players who have lately joined Enda Baldock, Jayden Bogle, and Sander Berge in the treatment room due to injury.
Anel Ahmedhodzic, a crucial defender, might be able to return to the starting lineup following his injury, allowing Heckingbottom to switch back to a back three with more alternatives rather than having to field a new-look back four away against Stoke.
Gary Madine, who scored his first league goal of the season last weekend, will probably start against the team he helped in being promoted to the Premier League in the 2018–19 season.
He will be joined again by crucial Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Jerry Yates, whose brace in that victory brought his league goal total for the season to four.

Sheffield United 2-1 Blackpool
Following two losses, Sheffield is still only barely ahead in the Championship on goal difference. In front of their supporters, the Blades will try to get back to winning, and they start the game as heavy favourites.
Blackpool, on the other hand, also needs all possible points, but for opposite reasons since the Lancashire team is only just avoiding the drop. Four points from the team’s last two games under manager Michael Appleton indicate that things may turn around.
