Brentford Vs Blades

Lets hope to see this Saturday
With the Blades going out of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night losing 2-1 to Burton at home, most fans like myself were deemed not to be bothered about the loss and want to concentrate on the league. Mind you we would not get anywhere near the final. Brentford at the the weekend a place where we have suffered losses over recent seasons. Brentford will give us a har
d game, but will be without Simon Moore who has gone to Cardiff and Harry Forrester who has gone to Donny. Both very young talents and will be a big miss for the Bees. Having drew with new comers Port Vale on the opening day most Bees fans will expected their team to get there a bout's this season after putting behind them last season disappointment Vs Doncaster in which Marcello Trotta missed a penalty and Doncaster went up the other end and scored. United will once again probably play their new slick passing style with hope of frustrating Brentford too. With Taylor coming on for 30mins against Burton on Tuesday hopefully he has the edge over Porter as i don't think many more fans can take much more from Porter who showed a lazy performance on Tuesday. Weir said that Taylor had rolled his ankle on Tuesday though so will have to wait till Thurs/Friday to asses him.

Team News
Brentford are hopeful defender Tony Craig (ankle) will be fully fit while midfielder Toumani Diagouraga is available following a virus.
Midfielder Jonathan Douglas (knee) and goalkeeper Richard Lee (shoulder) remain sidelined.
Also David Weir says Lyle Taylor is touch and go, for Sat and that Kevin McDonald might be on his way to Wolves

Manager's views

 Uwe Rosler
"A club like Sheffield United should not be in this division but football is sometimes cruel.
"They were one of the big favourites last year and a threat for us this year.
"They kept the core of their players and added some youth and some new faces like Febian Brandy. They are an exciting team.
"I hope there will not be three red cards  like last time."
Blades boss Weir says it will be a difficult challenge.
