Sheffield United are looking to go top of the Championship tonight with a win over bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
The Blades are also hoping to bounce back from their defeat last time out to the hands of Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
Chris Wilder’s side have made an impressive start to the season and have their fans dreaming of promotion. A win will put pressure on fellow contenders Leeds United, Middlesbrough, Derby County and Norwich City to get results tomorrow.
It is set to be an electric and hostile atmosphere at Bramall Lane tonight with both sides desperate for the win and bragging rights of the City.
This fixture last season ended in a 0-0 draw which was Owls’ boss Jos Luhukay first game in charge. Wilder’s men won the away game 4-2 at Hillsborough.
United have been strong at home so far in this campaign and have lost just once there in the league on the opening day against Swansea City.
Prediction- Sheffield United 1 Sheffield Wednesday 0- It will a tense game and both sides will be cautious of making mistakes. Billy Sharp to get the goal for the Blades in a tight affair and put serious pressure on the future of Luhukay at Wednesday.
Here is what the Blades fans are saying on Twitter ahead of the game-
