The EFL Championship continues in midweek and will see Sheffield United host Preston North End on Tuesday night.

Sheffield United finally picked up their first win of the Championship campaign on Saturday afternoon.

The Blades ran riot against newly-promoted Peterborough United as they won 6-2. Victory for Sheffield United marked their first league win under their new manager Slavisa Jokanovic.

Sheffield United now sit 18th in the league table with five points from six games. They are currently enjoying a decent unbeaten spell as they have not lost any of their last three games in all competitions. Sheffield United will be looking to build on their newfound form with a win on Tuesday.

Preston North End played out a goalless draw against Bristol City on Saturday and will feel they could have won the game. The draw ended Preston's run of three consecutive wins in all competitions but should not detract from their good recent performances.

Preston North End are 13th in the Championship table with seven points from six games and are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions.
