Blades Vs Bournemouth

Eddie's Cherries are looking to get into the championship
The Blades are going to The seaside,and hopefully bring back the 3 points this result may determine whether it's make or break for the Blades. With them a point behind the top 3 if they win and results go the Blades way we could be sat at the top of the table by 5pm tonight. Eddie Howe has done really well to turn Bournemouth around in September we beat them 5-3  with goals coming from Flynn (2) Cofie,Creswell, and now gone Blackman from the spot. We Blades didn't think the Cherries would be a threat to the promotion push. So with the Blades looking to complete the mission and come back to Sheffield with 3points.

Team News

The Blades have no new injuries except from Forte who is likely to miss out but Wilson didn't rule out him not playing.Howard and Miller are still out with Matt Hill expected to play after playing in a reserve friendly Vs Leeds in the week.

View from the Managers
Wilson :
"We've missed the competition for places at certain stages of the season but we have that now.
"It takes a lot of courage and mental strength to stay at the top of this league this season and we have good experience in our side.
"They're a very well organised side with some great players.
"The run they've had since Eddie Howe came back is fantastic and they're there to be shot at now."

 Howe: Sheffield United have an experienced side compared to us. They have done it at a higher level and that will help their push.
"They've got a good blend and a good balance. They know what they are doing, they've been in this position many times.
"The supporters have been outstanding for us, home and away. The atmosphere at the home games has been very good and a key factor in our form, and we will need them on Saturday.
"I can assure them that we really do need their support this week. We need them to stick with the team and get behind the lads as these are difficult games against big football clubs.
