Andy Garner is predicting that Saturday's Sky Bet League One encounter at Swindon Town will be an interesting one.
Mark Cooper's Swindon currently sit two places above the Blades in the table with three points more but Nigel Clough's side have two games in hand.
Blades coach Garner is looking forward to the fixture and says the motivation is there for both teams to go for broke.
In the build up to the game, he said: "It will be a good game because the incentive is there for both teams, it wouldn't be a surprise if both went all out for a full three points, a draw may not be good enough for either team, that's how the league is now.
"Swindon will be a difficult proposition. They are not the most physical, they like to take their time and play but we will go there and concentrate on ourselves.
"Our players have had a couple of days rest and we've had, as a management team, a few chats about fatigue, especially with the games coming thick and fast and the FA Cup game coming up.
"The next couple of weeks are huge, we are taking each game as it comes, as the cliché goes. There's a little chance of getting into the play-offs, but if we are going to do it, it will be the hard way because we play the majority of the top teams. That said, we would rather be playing these teams, we are looking forward to them because we are in good form, good shape.
"We have a couple of games in hand and we hope to try and use them, we'll keep going, no matter what."
