CONFIDENT boss Lee Bradbury believes there is “no better time” for Cherries to be facing League One big guns Sheffield United.

Cherries tomorrow host the Blades at the Seward Stadium bidding to follow up their memorable 1-0 triumph at Huddersfield (3pm).

Bradbury said: “They are a good side, a really big club. They will be looking at our result.

“We are on a good little run in the league so it should be a good game.

“They have got some really good individual players but they work hard as a team as well and that is the key to success. You have got to have all your individuals working as a team and that is what we are trying to instil here.

“It should be a good game of football because they like to play. They have got some good strikers. It is going to be a tough game for us but there is no better time to play them.”

Bradbury will be forced to make a numbers of changes following the victory at the Galpharm Stadium with Wes Thomas, Harry Arter and Scott Malone all unavailable.

Thomas sits out following the expiry of his loan spell from Crawley, while Arter serves the first of a two-match ban after picking up 10 bookings. Malone is reportedly set to be sidelined for two to three weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Bradbury added: “We have got players waiting in the wings who are more than good enough to come in and do a job. It is a fortunate position for me to be in.”
