The Blades are preparing to host Coventry City at lunchtime this Saturday and will be hoping to get back to winning ways after failing to come out victorious in their previous three fixtures.
Coventry are enjoying a stellar start to the campaign and currently sit 4th in the league – eight points off an automatic promotion spot.
If Sheffield United are to win this weekend they can potentially move up to 13th place before they take on Reading on Tuesday - who currently only sit three points above them.
