The Blades limped into the top six with just one win from their final eight games of the regular season and will face the Glovers at Bramall Lane on Friday before making the return journey to the West Country for the second leg on Monday.

But Morgan does not believe it matters which way around the fixtures are.

"In an ideal world, you want your second leg at home, but does it really matter?" he said.

"Ask the two Champions League sides that went away from home in the first leg of the semi-finals.

"You have got two games, it doesn't matter if you're home or away, they are games you have got to be strong in and rise to the occasion."
