Recent respective form guides

Sheffield United are unbeaten in their last six home games, but have drawn three of them. A total of 9 goals have been scored by the Blades in those games, with 3 conceded.

The Rangers have had a decent run of form away from home recently, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. Just 5 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 2 have been let in at the wrong end.

Sheff. Utd. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola Championship, picking up 62 points from their 40 games so far. Q.P.R.'s 57 points from 40 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
