Sheffield United have been warned that Brighton and Hove Albion will arrive at Bramall Lane in confident mood on Saturday, despite failing to win any of their last seven games.

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s meeting with Chris Wilder’s squad, Albion’s Ezequiel Schelotto insisted a first victory since December 28 is not too far away for Graham Potter’s squad.

Using events during back to back draws with West Ham and Watford to support his claim, Schelotto said: “We had a lot of chances. But in matches you have to concentrate for more than 90 minutes.

“The Premier League is very difficult. We go on game by game and hope that the win comes at some moment or other.”

Albion mustered twice as many shots on goal as Watford during this month’s clash at The AMEX Stadium, where United triumphed 1-0 in December. They also created more chances than West Ham in London seven days earlier, but still found themselves trailing 3-1 before late strikes from Pascal Gross and Glenn Murray secured a share of the spoils.

United will enter the fixture searching for a fourth straight win in all competitions.
