Hold on tight! Sheffield United fans could be set for a rollercoaster final day as the Championship play-off race goes to the wire.

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.

Sheffield United vs Fulham LIVE

Key Events

  • Blades must win to guarantee Championship play-off spot, otherwise risk relying on results elsewhere
  • Four teams still in contention for final two play-off places: Sheffield United, Luton, Middlesbrough and Millwall
  • Visitors Fulham have nothing to play for but won 7-0 last time out

Berge robs a Fulham player and the ball falls to his French teammate, who holds off a Fulham challenge to get a shot off which is deflected out for a corner.

Norwood produces another brilliant delivery from the resultant kick, which Jack Robinson nods over.

Blades in control now.

Nathaniel Chalobah is down and looks to be in a lot of pain following a challenge from Jack Robinson. Stoppage in play as he receives treatment.

Kenny Tete fires one into the Kop from outside the area following a knockdown. No trouble for Foreringham.

More good play from United

They’ve definitely found their groove and MGW dances past a challenge in the box to find space, but fires into the side netting. Unlucky.

No sign of nerves now.

Morgan Gibbs-White beats Gazzaniga with a near-post header!

First real chance for the home side sees Oliver Norwood tee up the Wolves loanee perfectly.

United have settled after a nervy opening few minutes.

No score updates elsewhere

United are finishing fifth as things stand.

The Blades are yet to get a hold of the game and the first chance falls to Fulham, who are free of any pressure this afternoon.

Bobby Decordova-Reid’s shot from inside the box is straight at a United defender, however.

Who else can still make the play-offs?

Luton, Middlesbrough and Millwall are also in the hunt for the final two places.

Luton take on Reading, who are already safe from relegation.

Middlesbrough travel to mid-table Preston and Millwall are away at Bournemouth, who were promoted on Tuesday.

United and Luton will guarantee their play-off spots with a win. A draw could also be enough for the Blades, but they would be reliant on Boro and Millwall not winning by too big a margin.

A loss could make no difference, provided the chasing pack don’t win.

Breakdown of Fulham changes

Paulo Gazzaniga, Michael Hector - formerly of Sheffield Wednesday - Nathaniel Chalobah, Jean Michael Seri and Neeskens Kebano all come into the starting XI.

Tosin Adarabioyo and Harrison Reed on bench.

Harry Wilson, Tom Cairney and Marek Rodak all miss out.
