Gaffer targets more cup success

5 December 2014

Nigel Clough insists the Blades will be going all out to win Saturday's FA Cup second round tie with Plymouth Argyle at the first attempt, but is wary of the threat posed by the Pilgrims.

The Blades boss hopes United can use Saturday to get a first home win in five matches and end a testing run of games on home soil where lady luck had evaded his team on a number of occasions.

Looking ahead, the Gaffer remarked: "This game has probably taken on an added significance because of our recent results at home.

"There's an element of frustration there as well because we don't feel as if we've played badly.

"The only changes we'll be making are enforced ones. It's going to be a strong team out there."

Of the visitors and their manager, who has previous connections with the other half of the Steel City, Clough added:

"John (Sheridan) will have plenty of incentive to win this one. He's ex-Sheffield Wednesday and I think they'll be looking forward to the game.

"In the second round there will have been one or two names that people will have wanted to draw and Sheffield United are one of them. But the big incentive for us is to go through and also without a replay.

"Of course, we'll take one of those if we're losing with five minutes to go but we want to go out there and get the job done on the day."
