Another big game beckons for City this Saturday and game which we should look to win seeing as we our the home side. The Blades are very good at home but have struggled a little bit away from home this season, however they're in the top 6 and I will expect a tough, tough game.

Could see a couple changes for City as we're playing Saturday/Tuesday up until the JPT final at the end of March!

I think Saville will come in for Elliot and maybe Little for Tavernier. Score - 1-0 City

Change of subject a little, I really want to watch the game but seeing as its already sold out I'm thinking of buying one in the away end? I certainly won't celebrate or cause aggro but just want to watch the game. Is this a stupid idea?

If they arent going to sell out, why not? It would be very strange though, watching us from the away end.

2-0 city.

Just because you beat them doesn't make them shit. They're still in the playoffs with games in hand and I for one am expecting a tough game. They also seem to step their game up against better sides.

Well I thought they were incredibly poor in both games against us. Can't knock their cup record, but I don't think they're anywhere near the level of the top 4.

On their day they can beat anyone though, as they showed the other week by beating Swindon. As I said they up their game against better sides, can't see it being comfortable at all.

They are a good side and will give us a tough game but we are on such a roll that id back us to beat anyone at the moment. Wouldnt be overly surprised (or dissapointed) with a draw though.

We're you paying on the day, or buying in advance? Because obviously no POD for away fans...

I think we will win 1-0

Were no where near going to sell out and youd be fine will be full of familys and old ens but its all ticket so unless you buy from our ticket office you wont get one

Keep checking OTIB, when it's a sellout, people often offer tickets on there.

I was planning on buying a ticket on the phone to Sheffield United and collect it at the ground?

An important game for United, and given that Clough has recently stated that his squad would be more suited to Championship football they now have their chance against a side who are clearly bound for there next season. It may strangely help us to play a side who will attack from the off as it will give us the opportunity to counter attack, but the same could have been said of our game at MK yet we were far too timid, with us missing our big chance and them scoring theirs.

There is also the fact that Clough doesn't know his best team, which is partly due to the recent influx of players but also because he changes the side constantly. The three changes from Saturday's horror show at Gillingham to the Colchester win was relatively minor tinkering this season.

I like the fact we have some pace in Done up front but the midfielders need to support him more than they have McNulty or Higdon so far.

Bristol City are clearly a very good and consistent side, but we should have nothing to fear. Whether we can keep a clean sheet is debatable, but I think we can get a 1-1 draw.

Almost a bonus game for us having built a steady lead. A win would be fantastic but a draw at the end of a good game wouldn't be a disaster. Sheff Utd have got to be the weirdest side in the league. Pre season favourities, beaten some good teams but so inconsistent.

Can't sell their allocation? Sheffield men under the thumb on V Day? Or symptomatic of them never bringing anyone here?

Won't be an easy game but I do feel Sheff Utd get overestimated a lot based on the fact they're Sheff Utd rather than their team and performances this season. Draw wouldn't be a disaster but I'd be disappointed if we don't get the win

If the Blades don't sell all their tickets, won't City move the segregation barrier and make more home tickets available again? They've done it before.

Seriously our away fans for longer distance trips are all familys,old ens, and the ones who never miss a game i reckon you could jump up when you score and you'd be fine

At home I'd hope we could get 3 points, while 1 point isn't a disaster against a team in the play offs we need to keep momentum up while playing Saturday/Tuesday for a long period.

Hope 2-1, reckon 1-1

I'm worried about this. I know they have had some poor results against the likes of Gillingham but then their cup form has been class. Odd side.

A draw wouldn't be a disaster if we follow it up by beating Peterborough.

I know we have to earn a result no matter which team we play, but the table shows BCFC as being the best team in the league at the moment. Let's let other teams worry about us.

2-0 City

I have to say I'm a little underwhelmed by the number of Blades heading down for this one as they're the biggest club in this league by some way but, after a little bit of checking, I'm surprised by their numbers at our place. I appreciate it's one of their longest trips but I would have put my house on them selling out given it's just 1100 seats.
Narrow home win (gulps!).

Our longer distance followings are shite unless were challenging for the league
