Opposition view: Sheffield United players must respond to derby day pressure against Chesterfield FC

The importance of this fixture is huge for Nigel Adkins and his Sheffield United side.

Theree is great pressure from the Blades supporters and the players know that they need to get back on track as soon as possible after last weekend’s opening day defeat.

A local derby victory will do just that. With many expecting this to be the Blades final year in this division, will the pressure and expectation get the better of them or will a good win against Chesterfield be enough to get their season up and running to start and spearhead a promotion push?
