£2.25m-rated star in, Leon Clarke axed: The strongest Sheffield United and Brentford combined XI – Agreed?



Sheffield United are still hunting a play-off place, just two points separates them and sixth placed Middlesbrough.

On the other hand, Brentford concede eight points and are two places below the Blades, whom they face tomorrow.

Dean Smith might feel his team have already had their final roll of the dice, but where there is a mathematical chance, they’ll keep on fighting.

A win tomorrow might open up a small window, it would certainly put a huge hole in the Blades promotion hopes.

Whilst they tussle with each other it shouldn’t be forgotten that both sides are gate crashing the top ten, with sides such as Leeds, Birmingham and Sunderland below them, they’re punching above their means.

Sheffield United might argue the opposite, they’re amongst the top five supported teams in the Championship and might feel they deserve a place in the top six.

For either side to be at the stage of the season where they are is a great  achievement and it points to two talented squad laden with skill and hard work.

Here, FLW attempts to put together a side from the two. Do you agree with our picks? Let us know in the comments.
