‘This is an unbelievable boost’ – Good news for Sheffield Utd ahead of weekend

Published

on

Sheffield United have recently been given a boost, with the news that John Egan is set to be available for the Blades’ short trip to Rotherham United this weekend.

The defender looked doubtful for the trip to the New York Stadium after recently being withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad in midweek due to a calf injury.

But reports have recently emerged that Egan has recovered in time for the crunch match this weekend, as Chris Wilder’s men look to secure only their second win in their last six outings.

Here, we discuss just how much of a boost this news is for Sheffield United…

George Harbey

It’s a huge boost for the Blades.

Egan has been solid at the back for United this season, and his absence would have been a big blow as United look to secure a much-needed win this weekend.

Chris Gallagher 

This is great news for Sheffield United.

Egan is a key player in this side and has formed a strong understanding with O’Connell and Basham in defence.

The Blades conceded twice in the only league game the Irishman has missed this season, highlighting just how important he is to the side.

Jacob Potter

It’s a huge boost for the Blades.

Egan has played a crucial part in their promotion push this season and Chris Wilder will be delighted to have him fit for this weekend.

If he can stay fit for the remainder of the season, then Sheffield United will certainly be well in the promotion hunt by the end of this year’s campaign.

Jay Taylor

This is an unbelievable boost for Chris Wilder and his team – John Egan has epitomised their team ethic and is an absolute rock at the back.

Having him fit to play could change the whole complexion of the fixture in its entirety.

If he hadn’t been fit, then you’d potentially feared for the Blades this weekend, however having him available swings the odds slightly in their favour.
