Peter Taylor is confident Sheffield United will avoid relegation.

The Blades, who were relegated from the Premier League in 2007, beat Gillingham 1-0 at Priestfield on Wednesday night.

It was the United's “best three points of the season” according to visiting boss Nigel Clough as they look to avoid the drop into the Football League’s basement division.

Gills boss Taylor said: “They have got lots of good players and I have said all along, Bristol City and Sheffield United will not be in the bottom four at the end of the season, simple as that.

“Their squads are too strong and Sheffield United showed that.

“They had a very good result on Sunday (beating Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup) and they rested a few players against us.

"They had very good players to come in and so that’s the strength of the squad and why their manager picked the team he did.”
