In the last match United collected that much needed win when one of Chris Wilder’s former sides Oxford were beaten two-one last Saturday.

We’ve got to wait until Sunday for a trip to Gillingham, who have reacted well to a recent thrashing suffered and won three-two at Shrewsbury a week ago.

Both sides suffered midweek EFL Trophy defeat with United losing out to a Leicester U23 side on penalties after a nil-nil draw at Bramall Lane with Gillingham losing at Priestfield to League 2 side Luton so as much as that competition isn’t that important to either a reaction will be wanted.

The Blades will want it more….hopefully as we look to build on that Oxford win.

What will happen in this one though?

Cast your vote so we know if you think it’ll be all smiles or disappointment for United come the full time whistle.

We can say it goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result.

But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough!
