Sheffield United will bring the curtain down on their miserable campaign today against Burnley at Bramall Lane and we have the team news.
The Blades have been down since before Christmas in all honesty and the players deserve some credit for at least sticking at it. However, we all know things haven’t been good enough.
Around 5,000 fans ‘should’ be present at Bramall Lane. The decision to charge £40 has backfired hugely, with tickets going all the way to general sale yesterday. What the atmosphere inside the Lane will be like, remains to be seen.
For Paul Heckingbottom, it could be the last squad and XI he picks. Hecky has done well in the circumstances, and in recent weeks performances have been a tad better.
Sheffield United team news v Burnley
A number of young players have been given their chance. Daniel Jebbison should get the chance in front of fans to show what he can do. On the bench, Femi Sekiri, Zak Brunt, and Kyron Gordon will all also be pushing for minutes.
Rhian Brewster is another who will hope to play some part. But his lack of minutes, coupled with Jebbison’s rise in recent weeks, means things aren’t looking too good for the former Liverpool man.
So, with Burnley the visitors today, here’s how we see Sheffield United lining up as the Blades’ Premier League adventure comes to an end.
