The last time the two sides met, back on Boxing Day in 2018, the United cruised to 3-1 win over then-Rams-manager Frank Lampard's side, with Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick and Leon Clarke all getting on the score-sheet.
The Blades head into the game with a real point to prove, after making it four straight league games without a win last weekend, after suffering defeat at home to Huddersfield Town.
Speaking after the game, Wales international Rhys Norrington-Davies gave an insight into his thoughts on breaking into the side, after spending the last three seasons out on loan with four different clubs, and said: “Coming into pre-season, I wanted to be number one (choice at left wing-back)
“I’ve got to be patient and bide my time and take every opportunity that comes my way. I’ve got to keep on going, train well and take the chances when they come, as they did on Saturday.”
He continued: “I like to get forward; I feel like I’m an attacking full-back. And when you go to wing-back, you do have that licence to get forward, with the defensive side of things in mind as well.
“It was great to make my league debut for Sheffield United. It’s been a long time coming and it was great to be out in front of the fans, although it was disappointing that we lost. Hopefully, there is more to come.”
