Newcastle United v Sheffield United Match Preview & Trends

Bruce relishing the return of the Geordie faithful

The passion the Newcastle fans will bring to this dead-rubber fixture will not be in doubt. After so long away, the Magpie supporters will be as loud as ever no matter what they were coming to see. Steve Bruce goes up against relegated Sheffield United with little to play for but will be proud to be able to show off his recent manager of the month award having kept Newcastle afloat in the Premier League with a remarkable turnaround in results recently.

Sheff Utd have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 25 away games and there have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 6 games involving Paul Heckinbottam’s men. The Blades have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 8 away fixtures and have lost their last 8 away matches in a row.
