Seeking to pick up a fifth consecutive win in the EFL Championship, Sheffield United take on Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

The hosts head into the game unbeaten in each of the last three meetings between the sides since 2012 and will look to maintain this fine run of results.

Huddersfield Town were denied a third win on the spin last Wednesday as they played out an uneventful goalless draw against Preston North End.

However, they are now unbeaten in 13 straight games across all competitions, claiming seven wins and six draws in that time.

With 49 points from 31 games, the Terriers are currently fifth in the EFL Championship table.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United maintained their fine run of form last time out as they saw off West Brom 2-0 on home turf.

The Blades have now won each of their last four games, while they are unbeaten in all but one of their last 11.

This fine form has seen them rise to 10th place on the log after picking up 45 points from 28 games.
