Blackburn will be looking to consolidate their lead at the top of the table

Sheffield United host Blackburn Rovers at Bramall Lane in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having had similar starts to their season.

Burnley are currently fourth in the league, two points behind their opponents. Paul Heckingbottom's side have been in inconsistent form of late, having won only two of their last five games across all competitions. They will hope to turn things around with a win against Blackburn on Saturday.

Blackburn are currently top of the table, one point ahead of Hull City in second. Jon Dahl Tomasson's side will be going into the game off the back of a 3-0 loss against Reading last time out. They will look to bounce back with a win against Burnley this weekend.

“Everyone from the game is all fine injury wise. You could see it (fatigue) in a couple of bodies in the game the other night.I wish we had everyone up to speed ready to go but it's in my thinking to use the sqaud.”Hecky on our game against Blackburn. 👊

Both sides will want to continue their strong start to the campaign and that should make for an exciting matchup.
