The Star’s Sheffield United reporter James Shield has given his views ahead of the Blades trip to Gillingham in League One on Wednesday and he believes the progress in the FA Cup can not only be of benefit in terms of confidence, but also in with regards to how manager Nigel Clough sets out his team as they continue their battle to stay in the division.

James said: “In cup competitions, against better sides; Aston Villa, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, with technically better players, they have found a way of being very solid and very set defensively.
