After sacking coach Slavisa Jokanovic in November, Sheffield United have managed to climb from 17th place then to qualify for the playoffs. New coach Paul Heckingbottom won 15 out of the 28 remaining fixtrues to get them here, with 3 wins in their last 3 games, including a 4-0 thumping of champions Fulham on the final day.

The two teams already drew 1-1 twice in the league this season so it is difficult to separate them. Nevertheless, there is a lot of expectation but a string of injuries should be a source of concern for the Blades. They need to find a win in this match as there is still a second leg waiting for them away and it won’t be easy.


Nottingham Forest started the season with 6 defeats out of 7 games, which left them rock bottom of the standings. After replacing coach Chis Houghton with Steve Cooper, the remarkable turnaround happened and they almost managed to qualify directly to the Premier League.

A play-off berth is still a wonderful performance and they will be looking to go one step further and actually join the top flight. If Forest can get a positive result here, they will go into the second leg at home with more confidence that they can win the play-offs and return to the Premier League.
