Sheffield United’s playoff hopes are hanging by a thread following a poor run of form which has seen them win only two of their last eight league matches.

The Blades have failed to win any of their last three, including the 1-1 draw away at Bristol City on Easter Monday, which saw Morgan Gibbs-White score his 10th league goal of the season to cancel out Chris Martin‘s opener.

Paul Heckingbottom‘s side will now be looking over their shoulders at the chasing pack as they are clinging on to sixth spot by just one point. Middlesbrough in ninth could potentially leapfrog them on goal difference if they were to win their game in hand by four or more goals.

Sheffield United lost their most recent home match against a resurgent Reading side, who ended the host’s 12-game unbeaten run at Bramall Lane, but the Blades will be hoping for better fortunes against Cardiff, a side who they beat 3-2 in December’s reverse fixture.

Victory for Heckingbottom’s men would see them complete a league double over the Bluebirds for the first time since the 1984-85 season.

Gibbs-White led the line in attack for Sheffield United last time out as the Blades were without a recognised striker, but Heckingbottom is hopeful that top scorer Billy Sharp can return to first-team action on Saturday.

Heckingbottom has also revealed, however, that he is ‘concerned’ by the muscle injury that George Baldock sustained last weekend, and with Jayden Bogle already sidelined with a knee problem, Ben Osborn could be selected to play at right wing-back.

The Blades will also have to cope without Oli McBurnie (foot), David McGoldrick (thigh), Rhian Brewster (hamstring), Jack O’Connell and Charlie Goode (both knee) due to injury.

As for Cardiff, Alex Smithies (leg), Isaac Vassell (knee), Max Watters (ankle) and Sean Morrison (ACL) are all ruled out with injuries.

Morison may revert to a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 formation after opting to use a 4-2-3-1 system against Luton, which could see either Aden Flint or Mark McGuinness start in the back three alongside Perry Ng and Curtis Nelson.

Jordan Hugill is set to lead the line again while Manchester City loanee Tommy Doyle could be handed another start in centre-midfield alongside Ryan
