Sheffield United
vs.
Walsall

Brammall Lane

23/10/12

19.45pm

Sheffield United go into this game, undefeated. They have dropped just 4 points from the last 18 available. Walsall on the other hand have failed to win in their last 4 league games.

Vital Quotes:

Dean Smith told the Official Site -"Sheffield United have quality throughout their side and are yet to taste defeat this season. We have proved what we are capable of so far and will be sticking to the principles that have served us well"

Sheffield United Team News:

Defender Lecsinel Jean-Francois will be sidelined for 2 months following his injury sustained at the weekend.
Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson will have the headache deciding whether to bring Neil Collins back into the side following his lay off.

Player to watch: Nick Blackman

Blades top scorer is Nick Blackman, who signed from Blackburn in the summer. He`s big, strong and quick which equates to a good striker at this level and many think he`s capable of stepping up to the Championship.

Walsall Team News:

Apart from an injury to long serving goalkeeper - Jimmy Walker, Walsall boss Dean Smith has a fully fit side to choose from. Even James Chambers could feature at right back this evening, for the first time since August.

Player to watch: Flo Cuvelier

Fans favourite Flo Cuvelier seems to be getting back to the form that we saw last season. Flo's performances against Shrewsbury and Crewe were a joy to watch and his assist and goals tally will continue to increase.

Match Facts & Stats

There have been 21 games between the two sides - With Sheffield United winning 11, Walsall 5, Drawing 5.

Our last visit to Brammall Lane was a 3-2 defeat last season.

We were leading 2-0 at one stage but failed to win (sounds familiar!!)

Ref Watch:

The man in the middle is Geoff Eltringham from Newcastle Upon Tyne. The young referee has given out 13 yellows and 1 red so far this season. He refereed our 2-0 home win over Charlton last season.
