          Clean slate for Blades

          Championship promotion contenders Sheffield United are doing everything right at the moment - and their red hot form is built on very solid foundations.

          Chris Wilder's men sit on the shoulder of leaders Norwich in the second tier, and have been cranking up the pressure on their challengers with 6 wins, 2 draws and just the one loss so far this year. The likes of Billy Sharp (22 Championship goals this season) have been doing the business at the sharp end for the Blades, but at the other end Dean Henderson, on loan from Manchester United, has certainly been doing his bit. 

          The Blades have, in fact, kept more league clean sheets than any team so far in 2019: Henderson and his mean defence shutting out the opposition on 6 occasions already since the turn of the year. 

          United fans are starting to believe this could be their year: the Blades winning their last 6 games straight at home. With the stakes getting higher by the week, there is no better time for the Steel City derby to come around - the Blades making the short trip across town to rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Monday.

          The Blades' season is certainly coming to the boil - but their hopes of lining up in the Premier League next season may well hinge on whether Henderson and co can keep their cool and keep racking up the clean sheets.
