Key Sheffield United man insists fight very much still on for top six despite Millwall draw



Sheffield United goalkeeper Jamal Blackman has insisted that his side can still very much finish in the top six, after seeing his side draw 1-1 with fellow top six rivals Millwall this afternoon. 

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after putting in yet another excellent display in the sticks for the Blades, the young Chelsea was in a bullish mood, and said his teammates ‘know they can do it’ with only three games of the Championship season remaining.

Blackman, who has been a revelation since making a move in the summer to Bramall Lane after finding his time at Stamfor Bridge short of first team chances, also spoke of how ‘tight’ the group was at Bramall Lane, and said that the feeling in the dressing room is that the club have had a great season, but ‘can do even more’.

The big stopper was a key man yet again today, and saw his side take the lead when leading goalscorer Leon Clarke notched with a quarter of the game remaining. However, experienced Lions striker Steve Morison responded almost immediately and neither side could find the crucial winner in the end.

Blades fans, do you agree with Blackman? Can you still do it? Let us know in the comments!
