Sheffield United will host Huddersfield Town on Saturday

Gameweek four of the Championship is in action this weekend and will see Sheffield United host Huddersfield Town at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

Sheffield United, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, are still yet to win in this campaign. They lost at home to Birmingham City on the opening day then played a goalless draw against Swansea City. They then lost 4-0 to West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night.

Huddersfield Town won their first match of the Championship campaign on Tuesday after defeating Preston North End 1-0. The Terriers drew 1-1 against Derby County on the opening day before falling to a 5-1 home defeat to Fulham last weekend.

There have only been three Championship games so far and there are more than enough games ahead to improve results. However, both sides will be looking not to fall too far behind the rest of the pack in the race for promotion.

Sheffield United vs Huddersfield Town Prediction

Sheffield United have begun their Championship campaign very poorly and are yet to win. They are the only side in the league yet to score a goal despite having about five strikers at the club.

Huddersfield Town have not given the most impressive performances this season. They've however managed to clinch their first league win of the campaign and will be looking to build on it.

Sheffield United's woes should continue against Huddersfield Town.
