Sheffield Wednesday vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 4 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Hillsborough Stadium.
Sheffield United travel across city for their Matchday 35 clash at Hillsborough looking to challenge Norwich City at the top of the table, sitting two points behind the pace-setters with four wins and two draws seen in six outings since late January.
Blades have beaten Middlesbrough, Reading, and West Brom in their last three outings and they now promise a great challenge on Monday, desperate to show off their class – despite being denied a win in two head-to-head clashes in front of the home crowd in 2018.
Sheffield Wednesday have proven themselves a tough side to beat and sit in the mid-table with a six-point gap to the league’s top 6, where they earned three wins and the draws since early February. They’ve beaten Ipswich, Swansea, and Brentford along the way and were denied points by Reading, Millwall, and Rotherham along the way. They were tough at the back and will now want more of the same in front of the home crowd looking for their fifth clean sheet in six outings here!
