Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United

It's been a strong start to the season for both Sheffield clubs with the Blades riding in third after four wins and two defeats.

Wednesday have got off to an impressive start to the season and are currently 11th in the Championship following a 2-1 away win at Reading on Saturday.

The win meant it was the best start to a season the Owls have had since 1990/91. 

More than 26,000 people packed into Bramall Lane on Saturday to watch Wilder's side dispose of Aston Villa. 

And over 22,000 supporters watched as two Lucas Joao goals saw off Reading in their last league game at Hillsborough. 

With so many fans packing into the grounds, health and safety and ground regulations have never been so important. 

There are new, strict rules about what can and can't be taken into football grounds with some objects obviously banned as well as others that aren't as obvious. 

A statement on both club's websites lists the items you are banned from bringing into the grounds. 

The statement read: 'All persons seeking entrance to the Ground acknowledge the Club's right to search any person entering the Ground and to refuse entry to or eject from the Ground any person refusing to submit to such a search.

'The following articles must not be brought within the Ground - knives, fireworks, smoke canisters, air-horns, flares, weapons, dangerous or hazardous items, laser devices, bottles, glass vessels, cans, poles and any article that might be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety. Any person in possession of such items will be refused entry to the Ground.

'Further, you may not bring into the Ground any sponsorship, promotional or marketing materials save in respect of official club merchandise and/or other football related clothing worn in good faith nor may you offer (either free or for sale by any person) any goods (including literature) of any nature without the express written approval of the Club's management.'
