Who will win the match between Blackpool vs Sheffield United?
Sheffield United is most likely to seal a win on Friday based on the current form of both these outfits. They will trip to Bloomfield Road on the back of a four-game winning streak on the road.
Since Blackpool failed to seal a win in four of the last five home fixtures, expect a win for the travelling Sheffield United.
