SH­EFFIELD UNITED KNOW THEY CAN REACH THE FI­NAL

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

I WATCHED an ex­cel­lent Sh­effield United vic­tory at Craw­ley re­cently.The in­ten­sity, or­gan­i­sa­tion and en­ergy in their per­for­mance was truly im­pres­sive. Their back four was solid, well mar­shalled and to­tally pro­fes­sional.The skip­per Michael Doyle ran the mid­dle of the park, with young Conor Coady in ex­cep­tional form and Jamie Mur­phy look­ing a con­stant men­ace down the left. They kept young Ste­fan Scougall and Jose Bax­ter on the bench, pre­fer­ring Chris Porter up top, al­though Bax­ter was ex­cel­lent when I saw them beat Carlisle.The FA Cup semi­fi­nal­ists have got enough to reach the fi­nal. Of that there is no doubt. Any­body who thinks that their wins over Pre­mier League op­po­nents in ear­lier rounds were a fluke can think again. Sh­effield United have strong play­ers who can def­i­nitely cause an up­set.

I can­not see Steve Bruce un­der­es­ti­mat­ing them, but nei­ther do I think Sh­effield United will un­der­es­ti­mate them­selves. They will be­lieve they can go all the way and I can see just why they think that.
