Leeds United hold the advantage over Sheffield United in the race for promotion.

Blades manager Chris Wilder is not giving up by any stretch.

 

He is confident his side can turn the tables on Leeds and overcome the three point deficit.

Wilder was quoted by Teamtalk when asked if their hopes were over: “The last time I looked it was only three points.

"The school I went to was quite a decent one so we are still in with a shout. One big win can change everything.”

Sheffield United are battling with injuries ahead of Friday's match against Nottingham Forest, with Chris Basham and Billy Sharp ruled out.

Leeds take on Wigan Athletic at Elland Road, looking to extend their advantage.

Sheffield United beat Leeds a fortnight ago to move above the Whites, and have since struggled for form, drawing two matches and losing one.

Wilder is clearly not giving up, and wants his players to have the same mentality as the battle for automatic promotion places heats up.
