Swansea have adapted to life in the Championship well and don't look in any danger of returning to League One. But much like their opponents for this Saturday, they are currently struggling to hit any kind of form. Swansea have currently only won 1 of their last 6 but have also only won 6. Although they are scoring goals, they have only managed to keep the 1 clean sheet in return. Their recent home form is better with 8 points taken from a possible 18 and 12 goals scored during that spell. They will be in the Blades faces from the off and looking for maximum points.

The Blades general form matches the way they're playing in that improvement is needed. The Blades have managed 10 goals in the last 6 matches although 5 came against Charlton meaning that they have only scored 5 in the other 5 matches. From being defensively solid for so long the Blades now look frail at the back having conceded 11 although the clean sheet against Forest was much needed.

Away from home the Blades are picking up points frequently but, as with their general form, they have struggled to score goals although 2 clean sheets have been earned. The unpredictability of Blackwell's team selection and apparant stubborness over his long ball tactics make this a hard match to call. On paper the Blades should win this, but on current form and the way they're playing anything could happen.
