Predicted Sheffield United XI vs Rotherham

Sheffield United could move back into the Championship’s automatic promotion spots as they face Rotherham at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening.

Paul Heckingbottom’s side produced a superb display at the weekend as they thrashed table-toppers Burnley 5-2 to hand Vincent Kompany’s side just their second defeat of the campaign.

Three points against Rotherham in Tuesday’s Yorkshire derby would see the Blades move above Burnley into top spot.

Thus, Heckingbottom will be desperate for his side to pick up where they left off, against a Millers side that are without a win in their last five.

Here is how Football FanCast expects Sheffield United to line up at Bramall Lane, with two changes from the side that started against Burnley.

Wes Foderingham looks unlikely to lose his place in between the sticks after starting 16 games in the Championship so far this season, with seven clean sheets to his name.

There is one change at the back for the Blades, as Ciaran Clark starts ahead of Jack Robinson in the left centre-back position, to give the “fantastic” – as dubbed by his manager – Englishman some rest after he only recently returned from injury.

Clark starts alongside John Egan and the impressive Anel Ahmedhodzic to complete a solid back three, with George Baldock and Enda Stevens keeping their place as the bombarding wing-backs.

Will Sheffield United win tonight?

John Fleck and Oliver Norwood also keep their place in the middle of the park, although assistant manager Stuart McCall suggested that loanee Tommy Doyle could return to the squad, so he will be pushing for a start.

However, his Manchester City teammate James McAtee will definitely be fit, so he earns a start ahead of Ben Osborn in midfield, to provide some more creativity and attacking threat against a side the Blades should be looking to defeat.

Finally, Iliman Ndiaye and Oliver McBurnie unsurprisingly start together up front, with 18 league goals between the pair so far this season.
