One More Time: Blades v Sky Blues

One More Time: Blades v Sky Blues

Sheffield United host Coventry City at Bramall Lane on Saturday, the final game of a long season for both clubs which has ended on a high note for the Blades.

A slow, steady improvement under Nigel Clough means they cannot finish lower than 8th in League One, a scenario that looked highly unlikely after David Weir's managerial baptism ended just before the reverse fixture at Sixfields. Meanwhile a widely-praised performance in the FA Cup semi-final saw the Blades come up just short against Hull City.

Only three points would separate the two sides had the Sky Blues not been docked ten points but the kind of football that City played in that televised 'home' game against United does seeem a long way away.
Steven Pressley's side have been forced to scrap for the points that ensured their safety in the division last weekend and whereas Clough is looking to put the final touches to his squad for a promotion push next season his opposite number is facing up to the task of rebuilding his side.

Midfielder Franck Moussa is thought to have played his last game for the club, a back injury set to rule him out at Bramall Lane and with his contract then expiring in the summer.

'It's a shame because in the last four weeks we've been desperately trying to get him back involved but that`s not been the case,' said Pressley.
