Ellis looking to end rocky patch

The Blades will attempt to end a run of four games without a win which has seen them slip out of the play-off places.

"The run has been a concern because things like that can affect confidence and attitude and you don't want that to turn into one point from the next four games as well," Ellis told the club's official website.

An improved showing against Preston in midweek, despite a 2-1 defeat, has given Ellis some cause for optimism, though, and he is hopeful his side can emulate their 3-2 win over the Robins earlier in the campaign.

He continued: "We expect to win, as we do when we approach any game obviously. City seem to have had a bad time of it of late and will be wanting to get at us for what happened at Ashton Gate in November, so we won't be taking anything for granted."
