Sheffield United have chance to do the double over Wolves and get back into the play-offs at the same time.

A 90th-minute winner from Robert Snodgrass ensured Aston Villa took all three points from Bramall Lane and stopped Sheffield United moving back into the play-offs last time out.

With sixth-placed Fulham not playing midweek the Blades had the chance to leapfrog the Cottagers with their game in hand, but instead stay in seventh as the Villans celebrated the spoils.

A strong start to the season after being promoted as League One champions last term has tapered off in recent times, with Chris Wilder's men having won just two of their last 12 Championship outings.

Things do not get any easier this weekend either, with a trip to leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers coming up for the South Yorkshire side.

However, it is not as if they haven't achieved victory over Wolves before, with United one of only four teams from the second tier of English football to beat the Midlanders in 2017/18, triumphing 2-0 when the two met back on September 27.

Wanderers themselves have not been in brilliant form, with their 1-0 win at Ipswich Town last weekend ending a four-game winless run in all competitions that had also seen them fail to find the net on three occasions.

While no mean feat can Wilder become the first manager - and perhaps only - to do the double over opposite number Nuno Espirito Santo this campaign and in the process get his Sheffield outfit back on track?
