I watched the game the other night and they are going to the end and getting wins, so confidence is high. They've got a clear way they want to play, which is a strength but that also means we know what to expect. They try and stretch the opposition with width, we know what we are facing and they are up there for a reason. It's our job to change thatPaul Heckingbottom, manager of Sheffield United (Image: Ben Early/News Images)Nathan HemminghamPundit predictionDavid Prutton, Sky Sports' EFL pundit, predicts a score draw here today Sheffield United have returned to form this week. Back-to-back wins have seen them move back up to third, and a win against Burnley could see them close to three points on the Championship leaders.
Burnley’s resolve is incredible. Two last-minute winners this week has seen them move five points clear at the top. Vincent Kompany is doing some job there, but a third late win in a week could be a step too far.

We'll have a go, we'll try, and if it works 'well done', if not we'll just carry on goingVincent Kompany (Image: Steven Paston/PA Wire)Nathan HemminghamPaul Heckingbottom's Sheffield United previewThey are top of the league, gone a long way unbeaten and changed the way they want to play.
