After the 2-0 win over Cambridge United in the FA Cup at the weekend, Sheffield United are now unbeaten in four and have lost only two of their last 11 games. So could a push for promotion be on the cards?

With Leyton Orient, Wolves and Peterborough losing form over the past few weeks - it leaves the door open for the South Yorkshire club to use the second half of the season to climb the table and get into the elusive play-off positions.

The climb to the top may seem a daunting prospect, but with new boss Nigel Clough making the changes needed, both on and off the field, it looks as though the Blades are finally starting to find their feet.

In recent weeks the son of the legendary Derby County and Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough has transformed the team into one that looks more than capable of challenging the big boys of League One and worthy of wearing those historic red and white stripes.

With Clough's track record of two clubs in 17 years, in which he turned both Burton Albion and Derby into promising and exciting teams, it seems that he has brought with him the prospect of stability, as well as a new style of football.

Only time will tell if the historic Sheffield club will be able to achieve their dream of returning to the upper echelons of the Football League but with Prince Abdullah, the Saudi Arabian billionaire who promised Premier League football at Bramall Lane within five years, bankrolling the transfers in January, it could be sooner rather than later.
