Harrison Reed says Rovers can expect a good game when Sheffield United make the trip to East Lancashire this evening.

The Blues and the Blades are a point off the play-offs and top of the table respectively, with both sides having made a good start to the season.

Reed came up against United twice last season while on loan at Norwich, and believes tonight's visitors shouldn't be underestimated.

"I was saying to Derrick Williams the other day that when I played against them last year it was a very, very hard game, both home and away," he said.

"I think they play three at the back; they've got that formation and they seem to play it really well, so it's a different test we'll come up against.

"We're ready for it and, like always, we'll be looking for the three points at home."

Rovers are currently 25 home leagues games without defeat, and Reed says Sheffield United will also have to be wary of our strengths.

"I think they'll know that it's not going to be an easy game for them either.

"The performances that we've put in and the way that we play, every team knows that when they play Blackburn Rovers it's going to be a very, very hard game.

"Hopefully we can get the three points.

"The fans have been very good. I've seen a few fans out and about, and obviously after the games I speak to them and it's great.

"They've been welcoming and they've said positive things. I just want to go out there and keep performing and I hope those positive thoughts and vibes keep coming.

"You could see on Saturday when we scored the first goal and the crowd was up, how much it spurred us on and helped us get back into the game, so they're hugely important."
