Steel City rivalry pleases Danny
Updated Friday, 27th April 2012
Blades boss Danny Wilson is pleased that both clubs in the Steel City have "pushed each other to the limits" throughout the season...
Wilson has bemoaned the difference in kick-off times and blames the Sky TV for the inconvenience. He said: "If I was in Sheffield Wednesday's position having to kick off before my opponent with one game to go, I wouldn't be too happy, but that's the way it's fallen and that's TV for you.
When asked if he will be keeping an eye on proceedings in the capital, Wilson continued: "You've got to know, of course. It does affect how you approach some parts of the game and it might even affect the line-up yet. We'll leave the teamsheet until as late as possible."
"I don't feel it's fair. I wouldn't be happy if it was the other way round. It'd be great if you won. But you've no chance of changing it because it's dicated by TV, there's no point in arguing about it.
"But I think I would have to make it understood by the authorities that perhaps this is not a level playing field."
There will be 30,000 sell-out in the home areas of Bramall Lane tomorrow in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Wilson accepts that with both Sheffield teams fighting for that one automatic promotion spot it makes the rivalry between the two clubs even more intense.
He said: What a great position to be in. We're going to try and push it over the line this weekend and if not this weekend, the weekend after.
"But it's definitely in our hands. We win on Saturday and we've got a great chance with one game left. If it doesn't go in our favour, then we've one game left and we take it to the final game.
"It's great for the city. There's one half wanting one result and the other half wanting another and this is where we wanted to be at the end of the season, we wanted to be up there and challenging and making sure it was exciting for everybody involved at Sheffield United.
"We've been an inspiration to each other because it's not easy, the pressure does build and I think professionally, we've pushed each other to the limits this season. It would be great if we could get to the Championship, but, and it's a big but, there's a long way to go yet."
If Wednesday fail to win and United beat Stevenage, those runners-up medals will be heading to S2.
