The top-two gap's set at two points

The top-two gap's set at two points

Sheffield United's 1-1 draw at Colchester United has left Wednesday just two points behind the Blades and second place with both sides having played the same number of games.

The Blades played their final game-in-hand on Wednesday tonight and could only manage a point against the U's. Will Hoskins had given Danny Wilson's men the lead but Steve Gillespie levelled to give the hosts a share of the spoils.

It means a tense 'business end' to the season is set to unfold, if it wasn't already, with both Sheffield clubs, as well as Huddersfield Town and MK Dons, all pushing for that second automatic promotion spot, with Charlton Athletic seemingly set for the title.

Wednesday return to action at sixth-placed Notts County this weekend while United are at home against Tranmere Rovers.

Starting to look better, good even; but, yes, we very definitely need three points on Saturday. Providing the gap isn't enormous, I reckon in sport it's easier to hold your nerve chasing than staying just ahead, providing you don't run out of time.

They were all ringing Radio Sheff 3 weeks ago claiming to have already bagged automatic promotion! Now they're lookin at the run in and wishin they had ours! O'Grady to start for Madine for me...toughest test so far this season and I'd take a draw. WTID

Meson_out. You can't change a winning team, therefore it's Madine all the way.

.... If Dave did change the team and got the points how many people would say "you can't change a winning team!?" I think Dave has realised that O'Grady is a spear-point striker to take advantage of his hold up play and allow midfield to push on or play a striker in the hole instead of playing Madine goal side of him which was proving less and less sucessful... (This is also known as plan "A") I personally would like to see the starting 11 remain unchanged to see if we can take our new style of play on the road. But I wouldn't be surprised with that change being made... the reason our progress has faltered in recent months is we didn't change our play and well organised teams exploited that with quality preperation. You can't have two really good results and assume that if you play the same way you are going to win by 3 clear goals everytime you take the pitch. Reads like I almost agree with Megson_out doesn't it??? Oh hell OurMaurice wont be pleased!!! lol WTID

That's alright, Jason love. 'Dave' had 80minutes last week to figure out a Plan B and he's had all this week to make it work. Three early goals is one helluva way to paper over the cracks but I doubt we'll be so lucky (lucky-lucky-lucky) I doubt we'll be so lucky on Saturday.

Actually, I'm more of a Frank Zappa man. So you've lost me there I'm afraid. Now if you want me to amend the lyrics to 'Thing-Fish'...

Zappa is a little before my time and I have to say Kylie isn't up there with my musical greats either... I've had a go with Kylie (I should be so lucky, lucky,lucky,lucky!) think it's only fair you give 'Thing-Fish' a go ;o) lol
