“Big game and must not lose. Have to play with both Gayle and Rodriguez up Gayle up top. One thing that is guaranteed is no clean sheet from ourselves. I can’t believe we only have 1 all season. We simply have to defend better
A win would take us 3rd and 2 points above sheff Utd. A draw would also take us 3rd . A defeat and if results go against us Saturday we could drop out top 6…”

“Big game this, 2 proper clubs and quite evenly matched on the pitch at the moment, so i’m going to boldly predict another draw. Hopefully we’ll have too much going forward and get a win to put some pressure on Norwich and Derby.”

“After the Brentford and villa games this has become almost a must win game.
Already 8 points off the top we could be 10-11 off it if we don’t win this one. Hopefully mozza HRK are back in contention”

“Not a “must win”..A real GOT TO! ….WIN. We are dropping down. DM must stop this decline. He has to drop his chums and go for victory.”

“Must-win for me if we are serious about finishing top 2, Leeds and Norwich don’t look like slipping up and we can’t afford to be 10 points behind them. Gayle needs to be through the middle, can’t believe it’s come to this but HRK is probably a better option than JRod on the right, hopefully Mozza is back in for Barry.”

“I agree we really do have to win if we are hoping to be in touch with the top 2 at the start of the new year.  But a draw would deny a rival 2 points, and they are pretty hot at home this season.”

“A draw seems the most obvious outcome but if we have a fully fit team and fire on all cylinders I think we could nick it.”

“I think we’ll be lucky to salvage a draw”

“Not confident at all for tomorrow.”

“Another away day struggle, against a confident team.”

“Defensively we are very poor”

“They’re a decent side. But push their defenders forward leaving gaps at the back to exploit.”

“this is a game where our ability to break using the flanks will be vital. Sheffield United play a back 3/5 where fairly uniquely the outside centre backs overlap. J-Rod will be used centrally to drop in and help the midfield with Barnes and another left high on the flanks. The game will be won in the wide positions: will their overloads lead to goals or will we be able to repel them and exploit the gaps they leave high and wide. For me, it is I.important that our two wide central midfielders, are extremely mobile and energetic. I’d have Phillips and maybe a youngster like Harper if he can be trusted enough to be diligent defensively.”

“Looking at the Blades results they don’t appear to have done so well against the sides at the top.”

“When looking at their squad there are no players we should really fear, but Wilder has done a brilliant job moulding a disciplined, organised team that wins games.”

“Got a good feeling about this one. Think we will keep a clean sheet too.”

“We have sold just over 1100 for this one. A lot of tickets sold the last couple of days.”
