All out for a victory

18 April 2014

Nigel Clough insists the Blades will be going all out for the three points in the Good Friday clash with relegation-threatened Stevenage.

Speaking ahead of United's clash with Graham Westley's Boro, Clough remarked: "Most people will look at this game with one team having very little to play for and the other fighting for their lives at the bottom.

"But the integrity of the league is paramount and we will be going all out to win the game, irrespective of what the opposition have at stake.

"I am relieved that we managed to climb clear of trouble as quickly as we did, because anyone in the bottom half could still go down mathematically I think, it is very tight down there.

"When you are down there you are looking at every result because things can change so quickly."

The Blades boss also revealed that he is likely to make minimal changes from the squad that played at Wembley on Sunday, adding:

"We had to field a weakened team against Rotherham with the semi-final in mind but that didn't sit easy with us.

"We might look to introduce the youngsters again on Friday, but predominantly it will our strongest team."
