A win's vital, but it will be tough

Last updated : 20 November 2009 By Bladesmadeditor

350278-3Our beloved Red and White Wizards are in action for the first time since Monday the 9th of Novemeber when Darius Henderson dispatched two spot-kicks to salvage Kevin Blackwell's side a valued point. It is the only point the Blades have picked up out of the last five games when a brave Richard Cresswell goal gave United a deserved point against Doncaster Rovers on home soil.

Since the illustrious 3:2 victory over Sheffield Wednesday, United haven't won! Kevin Blackwell's head has been called for from a big chunk of Unitedites, our own players have been booed and mini car park protests asking for Blackwell's resignation have took place after a couple of home encounters. I hate to say this, but lose tomorrow (Saturday) against bottom of the table Peterborough, and the number of fans in the car park after the game could massively increase.

Mark Cooper has taken reins at London Road after Darren Ferguson was sacked by the Peterborough board. The former Kettering boss has kept his cards close to his chest in regards to his first Posh line-up.

Who's more desperate for the victory? Would three points benefit Kevin Blackwell or Mark Cooper more? Tomorrow's (Saturday's) clash could be described as a six pointer. The Blades need maximum points to get closer to the play-offs, although a win wouldn't see United move up any places as 13th placed Crystal Palace are four points ahead. The nine point gap between 6th placed Leicester City and ourselves could become considerably smaller with a win.

Peterborough are four points off safety and a win for Mark Cooper would go a long way towards really settling to life in the second-tier.

Let's get behind the lads and make that difference. A win would be absolutely terrific! Come on you Red and White Wizards!!!
