In September United's first clean sheet was televised in a 0-0 draw with Birmingham City at home, and then in October a Billy Sharp brace ended Blackburn's impressive 25-match unbeaten home run.

With the Blades flying high, a 2-1 defeat to Derby County and then a 1-1 draw with Stoke City was also televised last month.

The 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest and the goalless draw in the Sheffield derby just before the international break were also shown on Sky.

Heading into the Christmas period, the South Yorkshire derby against Rotherham United and matches against Brentford, Leeds, Reading, West Brom and Derby County are all scheduled to appear on Sky.
