Sheffield United LIVE: Blades star's thanks to 'brilliant' team-mates | George Baldock injury latest | Chelsea build-up |
The teams around them aren’t making it easy, are they?
Brighton’s surprise win over Liverpool last night means that they’ve pulled away from the bottom three and Burnley, who had been on a decent run have been sucked right back in.
If nothing else, it shows that in Sheffield United’s bid to escape the drop this season, there are likely to be many, many more twists and turns before the campaign comes to a close.
Chelsea are next up for the Blades and with that match coming on Sunday, it will be tomorrow before we hear from Chris Wilder about the shape of his squad going into the weekend.
However, we’ll still have all the latest news and features from Bramall Lane here throughout the day from our team of Blades writers.
