Adams will face his former employers for the first time since he was dismissed from the Bramall Lane job.

The 51-year-old has played down the emotional return but still believes he could have finished the job in South Yorkshire.

He said: "I still maintain, given time, that I would have done the job and taken United back up. I wasn't given time, but I don't bear or hold grudges. I just move on."

Adams will be hoping 23-year-old super-sub Ben Williamson continues to impress after netting six times this season, including two in his last two, despite spending much of the campaign on the bench.

"Ben has done great," Adams told the Sentinel. "He has scored goals whether we've asked him to come off the bench or start the game. He can be pleased with his contribution so far."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
