Steel City Derby preview

Blue and White vs Red and White the Steel City derby is back this weekend for the first since 2010 at Hillsborough home of Sheffield Wednesday .

Sheffield United have failed to win any of the previous four fixtures between the sides at Hillsborough where the Owls have made home advantage count as they have won 10 of the past 20 meetings between the sides at S6.

This fixture also brings new managers to the fore as Carlos Carvahal and Chris Wilder go into their first derby as managers of the sides.

Wednesday currently sit 8th in the table compared to United who sit two places above in 6th after a simply incredible start by the Blades who will hope Billy Sharp continues his fine form in Sunday lunchtimes big kick off.

Steven Fletcher and Gary Hooper will be the key to the Owls winning as they are both expected to start together the duo have linked up with Barry Bannan well so far this season so this will be a danger point for United.

Carvahal’s men have scored two more goals than their City rivals so far this season but the Owls defence have leaked far to many goals both home and away.

United will be well up for the clash after defeat last weekend to Norwich City so they will be focused to sending their fans home very happy on Sunday afternoon.
