Several Sheffield United fans believe that Chris Wilder's men need to start preparing for the play-offs after a dramatic day in the Championship saw Leeds move three points clear of the Blades in the automatic-promotion race.

With Leeds playing Sheffield Wednesday in the evening, Wilder's side - who started the day one point behind - had the chance to put some real pressure on as they hosted Millwall at Bramall Lane earlier on in the afternoon.

 

They did move into second, but only on goal difference as the Lions scored a 95th minute equaliser, having already missed a penalty in the latter stages.

And Leeds took full advantage as they produced a superb performance against the Owls at Elland Road. Jack Harrison scored the only goal shortly after the hour mark to ensure that the Whites sit three points clear with four games remaining.

With Sheffield United's goal difference slightly better than Leeds', it could well turn around in one game once again. But for many Blades fans, the writing feels as though it is being written on the wall.

They have won one of their four games since beating Leeds at Elland Road and have thrown away leads in their last two fixtures. And with Leeds taking nine points out of 12 since Chris Basham settled that contest before the international break, many fear that the Whites will consign them to a spot in the play-offs.
