Sheffield United moved to within touching distance of the Premier League this weekend with wins over Nottingham Forest and Hull City.
Two huge defeats for Leeds United helped the Blades on their way, and if they can win at Ipswich next weekend, it will leave Leeds needing an 11 goal turnaround as it stands in the final game of the season.
Manager Chris Wilder deserves bucket loads of credit for the job he has done at Bramall Lane, and he will no doubt be delighted to lead his hometown club to the top flight and complete a remarkable turnaround from League One football just two seasons back.
Wilder loves his players to have desire and commitment too, and we here in the Tavern feel that rather than go and spend huge sums on players to help him out at the top of the pitch, Wilder should keep the faith with trusted duo David McGoldrick and Billy Sharp.
Both experienced strikers have never had a go at the Premier League really, and for Sharp in particular, it would cap off a momentous career with his hometown club.
Sharp and McGoldrick have just shy of 40 goals between them this season, a remarkable figure for two players who many believed wouldn’t cut it at Championship level.
There is of course a big argument to made for the Blades to go out and bring in some quality new signings if they do win promotion, but in Sharp and McGoldrick they have two players who give their all to the cause an ultimately, know where the back of the net is.
