For the first time this season, Sheffield United find themselves under a little bit of pressure in the Sky Bet Championship, with Chris Wilder searching for a way to help his side rediscover their winning formula.
Just weeks ago the Blades were well placed for a place in the top-two but three fixtures without a victory, a run that has included two defeats, has put their chance of automatic promotion in jeopardy, with Wilder’s side sliding to fourth.
The Blades face a huge task this weekend, welcoming Bristol City, who last week leapfrogged them into third, to Bramall Lane.
Wilder has been previewing that clash, confirming to Jonathan Buchan (@jonathanbuchan) that Sheffield United have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Robins’ visit to South Yorkshire.

The Bramall Lane boss was also able to provide an injury update on George Baldock, who missed the entire month of November through injury, confirming the defender is closing in on a return.
Following Wilder’s update, here is how Sheffield United’s supporters reacted…
Give Thomas a run out and put Bash back in defence to shore us up. Did you see Thomas’s sprint down the right for the 4th goal for the u23s? ????

Looking at the length of time Baldock has been out with a calf strain I'm expecting Coutts to be out for about 4 years.

Did you ask Chris if Boldock
was made of chocolate?

Missing him badly. Not worth risking him if he’s not reyt though
