A sold-out Bramall Lane awaits the Blades, who must win to guarantee their spot in the top six.

Fail to win and they risk relying on results elsewhere, with three other teams still in contention for the final two places in the end-of-season contest, which gets under way next week.

Final Blades switch

Gibbs-White gets a standing ovation as he’s replaced by Daniel Jebbison.

Conor Hourihane replaces John Fleck.

Official attendance

30,813. Impressive - and very loud.

Gibbs-White goes close

He fires one just over from outside the box. Unlucky.

Ndiaye, who has been outstanding, is replaced by Will Osula.

Rodrigo Muniz replaces Mitrovic, who has been completely anonymous (thankfully).

There’s an air of expectancy from the crowd every time the Blades, who have been scincilating, go forward.

Berge almost finds Stevens again but the pass is just cut out. Don’t be surprised if the home side score again, though they could introduce some subs to keep players fresh for next week pretty soon.

Middlesbrough have pulled one back at Deepdale and now trail 2-1, but with United and Luton winning even three points for Chris Wilder’s side wouldn’t make any difference to the play-off picture.

Enda Stevens baby!

United win the ball back high up the pitch and Berge finds Stevens for a lovely drilled finish into the bottom corner from inside the area.

Could this be 7-0, just days after Fulham did the same to Luton?

Blades kicking towards the Kop this half. Same again?
