SHEFFIELD United’s game against Stevenage at Bramall Lane this weekend is on course to be a sell-out, the South Yorkshire club confirmed last night.

United, who could enter Saturday’s match knowing a win would seal automatic promotion from League One, are also urging supporters to wear “their colours with pride” after designating the evening fixture a ‘Red and White Day.’

Dave McCarthy, United’s managing director, told The Star: “This one really seems to have captured the imagination of our fans and it promises to be a very special atmosphere inside our stadium.

“Manager Danny Wilson has spoken before about what a difference their backing can and has made to the players and how much it’s appreciated by everyone associated with our club.

“We want there to be a wall of noise throughout.

“Our followers are always loud and proud.

“They really are a crucial part of what everyone here is trying to achieve.”

United are preparing for the visit of Stevenage second in the table with only two matches left to play.

Tickets, priced £10 adults, £5 concessions and £1 juniors are still available from the United box office but staff yesterday reported a surge in sales.

United’s allocation for next month’s final match of the season - at relegation-threatened Exeter City - has now sold-out.
