‘That’ll be in Leeds players’ heads’ – Cause for Sheffield Utd optimism? Opinion



It will be a battle of two form sides in the Championship this weekend when second placed Leeds United host third-placed Sheffield United on Saturday lunchtime, with both sides looking to steel a march on their rivals in the race for an automatic promotion spot.

Blades manager Chris Wilder will turn to his veteran striker Billy Sharp to lead the line at Elland Road, as reported in the Yorkshire Post, as he looks to add to his tally of 23 goals in 34 starts in all competitions this season.

So is Billy Sharp set to score against Leeds given his record against them and his form?

We discuss…..

Louie Chandler

“It looks like it doesn’t it.

“Wilder has revealed that Sharp has been rested over the last two games with this clash in mind so you would expect him to be Sharp…

“He is a big game player so do not be surprised to see it happen.”

Gary Hutchinson

“Only if he gets the chance.

“It would be the sort of story that papers love, but he’s as likely as anyone.

“They’ll miss Madine though.

“He was going to be key.”

Jay Taylor

“Never rule it out.

“He has previous against his former club, and sometimes it just happens where an individual has a team’s number. That’ll be in Leeds players’ heads.

“That is Sharp with Leeds, so I would consider it ridiculous to rule out the possibility.

“The odds are he will probably find the back of the net one way or another.”
