Friday's derby will be the 14th league clash between the two Sheffield clubs to have taken place in the month of January

The very first league derby between the two clubs to take place in January was way back in 1895 when the Blades ran out 1-0 winners at Bramall Lane.

The most recent January Sheffield Derby was in 2008 when goals from Akpo Sodje and Marcus Tudgay saw the Owls claim a 2-0 victory in front of 30,000 fans at Hillsborough.

Interestingly, it is a case of honours even in the 13 previous January meetings between the two Sheffield clubs.
