Sheffield United will be hoping to get back to winning ways tonight when they entertain Bristol City at Bramall Lane.
The Blades were hugely disappointing last time out against Millwall, falling to a 3-1 defeat which saw tonight’s opponents leapfrog them in the process.
Having spent so long competing with the top two, Chris Wilder’s men now trail leaders Wolves by ten points.
Therefore, the lifelong fan and manager might be tempted to make several changes as a result of his anger at the defeat in London last time out and talisman Billy Sharp could return.
The club captain was left on the bench at the Den, with David Brooks preferred, but should eight-goal Sharp be restored to the starting XI tonight?
We take a look…
I think so.
Sharp is a big game player, and there is no doubting the size of tonight’s clash between Sheffield United and Bristol City.
Wilder’s side are missing an experienced head in Paul Coutts, so the Blades will want their captain back in the starting XI this evening.
After their recent form, he has to be in the team.
Play Sharp and Clarke together and the Blades have one of the best attacking line-ups in the division, and it is surprising they have not been sent out together more often. The pair must both start.
Yes, he should.
The Blades need their biggest characters for this game as it is so important in terms of their top six challenge.
If they lose tonight there’ll be more concern so I think bringing Sharp back in makes sense.
