Sheffield United v Brentford: Battle at Bramall Lane could be decided by these men



The Sky Bet Championship action is coming thick and fast before the next international break begins later on this month.

We’ve got another set of fixtures tonight and tomorrow before the weekend’s games in the next few days.

And, among tonight’s matches, the most eye-catching of all is surely the clash between Sheffield United and Brentford.

The Blades are going for the top two whilst the Bees still have hopes of the top six, and both have got two very sharp strikers up top.

In the home corner, Billy Sharp, in the away corner, Neal Maupay – and both have had stellar seasons so far up top for their respective teams.

Both have played over 30 games, both have hit the 20-goal mark – with Sharp currently just about leading the way after Maupay’s blistering start.

The Frenchman has got more assists – and is part of the Bees’ build-up more, whilst often it’s been David McGoldrick or Gary Madine doing that role in a two-man attack for the Blades.

They’re close with their passing stats, they’re close with their aerials stats – it’s only in the shots per game as well as the assists department where there is any noticeable change.

Picking one or the other is tough, then.

They are different types of players, but they deliver very similar results – it could just come down to which of them is feeling sharpest tonight that decides the game.
