    Burnley v Sheffield United Match Preview

    We welcome the Blades to Turf Moor on Sunday hoping to reverse the 3-0 drubbing we received at Bramall Lane last November. A repeat of the 1-0 win we achieved against the Blades in the 2009 Play Off Final would suit for a variety of reasons. Not least of which is Nick Pope’s pursuit of the Golden Glove where he holds a narrow lead over Alisson of Liverpool, Ederson of Manchester City and of course Dean Henderson. Burnley are in great form having picked up 21 points in their last 10 League games. Sheffield United suffered two successive 3-0 defeats against Newcastle and Manchester United on the resumption before returning to winning ways with a 3-1 win over Spurs last time out. The Blades will probably stick to their tried and trusted system of three centre halves combined with overlapping fullbacks. For Burnley Jay Rod, Chris Wood, JBG and Robbie Brady have all returned to training. Of these I expect Rodriguez (if declared fit) to start up front with Vydra. The fixture may come a little too soon for the other 3 to feature. Jack Cork went off injured at Selhurst Park so Pieters may be asked to continue in the left of midfield berth. COYC!

    Both teams now vying for a Europa League spot gives the game a bit of added bite. COYC#

    They are a very hardworking side and won't have had much of a break before Sunday,Wilder has done really well this season,should be a good game.But vying for a Europa League spot BT - do we really want to go down that road again? We have had enough trouble trying to put a squad together for League games.Leave that to the top 6.

    Will be good if we can beat em to get them back for last time and to show them they aren't all everyone makes them out to be!

    ..but I'm not hopeful. They don't have selection issues like we do, and we won't have much home advantage with no crowd!

    Would love to be in Europe again, if we can find the bodies.

    It's a question of who wants European football next season with a small squad.

    I don't want it Alfie, even with a big squad, the Europa League, as it was predicted it would, wrecked our season last time, it wrecks most clubs seasons, it'll wreck ours again if we qualify. Feck it, we want no part of it, Come on you Blades, they can have it for me.

    I was rather caught out there by Ben Mee being unavailable. We have kept that quiet.
