“Sheffield United present a stiff lunchtime test on Saturday, and Town can suffer with early kick offs following a midweek Wednesday game, and a big offensive improvement will be needed.”
“this will be a tough local derby, Utd have games in hand and could easily get a play off spot”
“Play like we did against Preston against Sheff U & we’ll get murdered.”
“We’ll need to buck up our ideas big time to get anything on Saturday,. I can see us being brought down to earth with a bang. “
“We definitely went for a point against Preston . If we hadn’t , I honestly think we would have lost by two or three goals . Will be a completely different approach vs Sheff utd Saturday . We’ll be going for the three points”
“means Saturday needs to be a good performance and a win”
“we must go for all 3 points.”
“we’ll need to be far more at it on Saturday, it’s a game we really need to win to try & keep a resurgent Sheff U at arms length points wise because the likelihood of us getting anything at Fulham the week after is very slim.”
“If you assume we’ll lose at Fulham we will need to beat Sheff U”
“Its unlikely we will come out of our own box at Craven Cottage.This is why I’m more than a bit pissed off with the negativity yet again. This was the one to go for. God help us if we score early on Saturday.”
“Beat an improving Sheff United team and it’s a good four points from the week, lose and it becomes a disappointing week considering the chasing pack.”
“Won’t be easy but need the win”
“Beat Sheff U and it’s a brilliant week. Can’t see it happening on that showing and with the form they are in, but what this team lacks in quality and goal threat they certainly make up for in organisation and spirit so you never know. We can be a very good team on our day, 5th place after 31 games is no fluke. And at least with us both playing tonight both teams have the same recovery time.
Despite the annoying early KO time let’s hope town fans turn out in force, a rocking atmosphere could make all the difference”
“If we get dropped out of the playoffs I wouldn’t care , all I care is watching a bunch of players playing for my club, we shouldn’t be in the playoffs, bottom half team we are but always the underdog and these lads will be up for Saturday and will put a fight for us”
“we are what we are, a team that has cost less than 1 million, At least we battle and we can cause some teams a problem getting to the playoffs even if we may( probably) will fall short ourselves.”
” Hopefully town are a bit more open in Saturday. We cant say we haven’t had decisions this campaign, we’ve had half a dozen go our way in the last 6 weeks. We create our own luck and all that. But the team are doing well and playing some good stuff. Will need battling rams at the ready for Sat.”
“I wouldn’t be expecting us to be “open” on Saturday.
Not against a fast and dangerous Sheff Utd. “
“Are we going to go for the kill Saturday?
Very much doubt it.”
“I’m happy to put my trust in Carlos setting us up correctly against a different and more dangerous opponent.
An unbeaten run as long as ours is no fluke.”
“There is always a surprise package in the championship, this season is us at this moment in time, if we don’t make it would like Luton to!”
“You cannot underestimate the difference Nichols has made. 13 clean sheets, unbelievable. We are still not scoring very many but we do not let in as many either. “.
“Town have had more ref’s decisions in their favour than I can ever remember. We are due a stinker.”
“Coming into this season I did think that there would be more trouble than normal- that seemed obvious after locking down the country for 18 months but I am surprised at just how many games are having incidents. In my 20 years of going it’s by far the worse it’s been for violence. Looking purely at town this Saturday could be eventful as I’ve seen Sheff Utd fans moaning at their own idiots but then after that game we have 6 weeks of what I would call low risks fixtures before the Hull away game.”
“I’ve said before that Town don’t make it easy on themselves by not having a big enough divide between home and away fans.
Why no netting??
Sheff. Utd could be interesting.”
