Sheffield United

The Blades drew their last home league game in midweek and needed two late goals against struggling Ipswich to secure the point.

So far at home this season they remain unbeaten in the league.
They have won two games against Watford 2-0 and Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 and drawn three games with Leicester 1-1, West Brom 2-2 and Ipswich 3-3.

Doncaster Rovers

Last time out on their travel Rovers let a two goal lead slip at Scunthorpe United.

Scunthorpe equalised from the spot deep into injury time with Rovers down to nine men.

Rovers are becoming the divisions draw specialists having drawn seven of their opening ten league games so far.

They have suffered two defeats this season, both on their travels at last seasons Premiership clubs, Middlesbrough 2-0 and West Brom 3-1.

The two clubs have only ever met ten times at Bramall Lane with the home side winning six, Doncaster one and three drawn.
