Blades v Horses Preview

Last updated : 18 March 2011 By @blades_mad1889

As I said in the Introduction our last game was against our rivals Leeds United. The Blades put the visitors in front when Steve Yates put through his own net after Wilcox crossed low.

United had to wait until first minute of added on time in second half when a thunderbolt of a shot ripped through Robinson's goal when Phil Jagielka shot from all of 30 yards out. Minutes later as extra time was approaching the Blades got the deserved winner when Woodgate could not fully clear a ball off line when left Peter Ndlovu with a half open net, which he put away to win 2-1.

We don't think that there are any new injuries, which means that Michael Boulding will be out, Jon Harley will be able to play after Fulham said he couldn't against Leeds. After a impressive game Wayne Allison is likely to start against Horses.

Likely Line-Up: Paddy Kenny, Phil Jagielka, Shaun Murphy, Robert Page, Steve Yates, Peter Ndlovu, Stuart McCall, Michael Brown, Michael Tonge, Wayne Allison, Carl Asaba.

Like United, Ipswich also had a good result on Wednesday against a Premier League side. They beat Middlesbrough 3-1 at Portman Road, the Tractor Boys went 1-0 up after two minutes through Gaardsoe, Jamie Clampham made it 2-0 on 40 minutes and Darren Bent scored four minutes later. With three minutes to go, Queudrue scored a late consolation for the visitors.

Town welcome back Alun Armstrong and John McGreal after they

were side lined through injury and are expected to start on Saturday.

Ex-Sheffield United star Marcus Bent will defiantly miss the trip to Bramall Lane as he is suffering with his groin and could be out until Christmas.

Likely Line-Up: Pullen, Makin, Hreidarsson, Gaardsoe, Venus, Wilnis, Wright, Miller, Clapham, George, D. Bent.

The last time we played Ipswich Town was their Promotion season of 1999/00 where we drew 2-2 in August 99. Town took the lead after only three minutes through Jamie Scowcroft and then 2-0 on 11 minutes through David Johnson. After the break United made it 2-1 when Martin Smith fired home on 53 mark, and with seven minutes left Shaun Murphy headed home a equalizer.

Prediction: United finally showed how good we play on Wednesday night against a strong line up of Leeds players which included Mark Viduka, Harry Kewell, Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Eric Bakke and Lee Mills.

I think that if United continue playing like that then they can win this game against Ipswich Town, I'm going with a 2-0 win, with Tonge and Allison to score.
