The match is this Friday, the 9th of November, 2018. Sheffield Utd vs Sheffield Wed live stream and TV broadcasting start at 7:45 pm (GMT).
Who is the referee?
Madley A. will take charge of this game.
An unbeaten seven-game home run sees the 'Blades' with a +17 goal advantage (GD) on their neighbours and they sit in third-place, but tight away losses to Derby (2-1) and Forest (1-0) have cut short their time at the top. A home 1-1 draw with Stoke has given Chris Wilder's men their worst five-game run of form since April last season.
In 17th-place, the 'Owls' have lost four games on the spin but have defied the odds with three 2-1 away wins (W3, L5); two consecutive away losses have seen Jos Luahakay's men ship six goals with just one in reply. But a worthy note; in the 2008/09 season, Wednesday did the double over United - under slightly similar league positions.
The H2H duel sparks excitement too (and debate) - in official matches, United have 46 wins to Wednesday's 42 (D41). But in the Premier League era, United have eight wins to five (D11) claiming consecutive wins between 2003-2006.
Sheffield Utd vs Sheffield Wed: Players to watch
Billy Sharp (SHU) has shown his mettle this season with ten goals so far - but has just one goal against Wednesday (W6, D2, L3).
