Ticket Information: Sheffield United

20 September 2018
The Blades competed with North End in the upper echelons of the Championship last year and going into their clash in April, both sides still had a chance of making the top six.
 
That afternoon Alan Browne’s goal saw North End come out on top in a tight affair and the Blades have kept up the momentum of last season again at the start of the 2018/19 campaign, sitting just outside those Play-Off places heading into the weekend.
 
They played on Wednesday night this week, a goalless draw at home to Garry Monk’s Birmingham City, but the manager made a number of changes, meaning he can again freshen the squad for the visit of the Lilywhites, especially after he strengthened his group in the summer with a number of experienced captures.
