Game: Fleetwood Town vs Sheffield United
Venue: Highbury Stadium
Kick-off: Saturday 1st October, 3pm
Sheffield United's fifth win in six games was a 1-0 home victory over Bristol Rovers. After a contentious foul lead to Sheffield United's first goal, Bristol Rovers had the misfortune of a red card just sixty seconds later. Despite that, the away side were dominant in the latter stages and United had to twice head clear off of their own line.
It wasn't United's best performance as they were more than matched, but they did what good teams looking to get promoted did and found a way to get the win eventually. United made a terrible start to the seaosn by their standards but have quickly found their feet in the past month.
Fleetwood havetheir struggles on their travels but their home form remains that of a playoff side at current. They've lost just one of seven at home in a row that included holding Leeds United in the cup and Scunthorpe in the League.

Sheffield United did lose their first two away games of the season but it should be said they were tough ones. We've established it's taken the Yorkshire club a month to grow in to this season, but facing Bolton and Millwall away were always going to be tough games anyway. They lost both.
The only side to stop them winning in their six game unbeaten run is league leaders Scunthorpe, but Sheffield United did show a lot of character to come from behind with10 men and secure a 2-2 draw away from home. Prior to that they beat AFC Wimbledon and Gillingham, and they've now scored seven goals in their last three away games.
Although Fleetwood have been in good form at home on paper, they've drawn three of their seven games with their three wins coming against newly promoted Oxford, struggling Coventry and also a Blackburn side who can't get anything right this season.
