Let's Paint the Town RED!!
Updated Saturday, 30th April 2011
It's do or die for Sheffield United today with a bumper crowed excepted to cheer on the Red and White Wizards as they battle against relegation.
Though, United must also rely on neither Crystal Palace nor Doncaster Rovers picking up a point or more against their opponents. Whilst our opponents Barnsley are safe from the trap door they will be eager to throw the soil over the Blades relegation coffin.
The visitors are expecting to bring their 3,000 allocation; that’s around a third of the clubs typical Oakwell attendance every other week whilst I would expect an overall attendance of 28,500+ at the Lane this Saturday. So all Blades fans attending sing out loud – sing out proud and show your colours!
Ahead of the game Reds manager Mark Robins told barnsleyfc.co.uk; "We are okay - Marlon's (Harewood) not okay. We're just going to monitor that over the next twenty-four hours. He's gone back to Blackpool for assessment. If he's not fit tomorrow we can count him out.
"We played pretty well until the Doncaster game. We didn't pass it well enough. Doncaster were the better side - we didn't pass it, they didn't either. We gave them the two goals. On Saturday we lost 1-0 and created enough chances to win a lot of games.
"I think Mick's (Micky Adams) changed some of his personnel. He's got Harry Maguire in the side, Jordan Slew, he's given a chance to. Slew's scored a few goals since he's come in, his confidence will be high. It's going to be an atmosphere that's boisterous.
"We've got to move the ball and try and play our football. The pressure is not on us but we need to get three points to take us to fifty-five points. We're looking to beat what we did last season."
WERE NOT GOING UP!,
WERE NOT GOING DOWN!
WERE SHEFF UNITED,
AND WERE STAYING UP!
