Sheffield United have won both of their Championship games at Bramall Lane this season, opening the season with a 2-0 win over Milwall before overcoming 10-man Sheffield United last time out. Anel Ahmedhodzic was directly involved in both goals, opening the scoring in the 33rd minute before assisting Max Lowe for what would turn out to be the winning goal just two minutes after the break. 

After a fantastic start to the season that saw Blackburn win each of their opening three games against Swansea, QPR and West Brom, Rovers were shocked as Reading came out 3-0 winners at the Select Car Leasing Stadium last weekend. Jon Dahl Tomasson was clearly unimpressed with their first half performance, making three subs at HT, but it made no difference with Reading adding two more goals after the break.
