Sheff Wednesday’s George Boyd, Fernando Forestieri, Tom Lees, Kieran Lee, Barry Bannan and Sam Hutchinson will not make the short trip to Bramall Lane for Jos Luhukay in his first game in charge. Meanwhile, Steven Fletcher and Keiren Westwood are fighting to be fit.

MATCH PREVIEW
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
 
Sheff Utd have dropped down the Championship table recently, but they are still in the mix for the playoff spots. Victory over their rivals on Friday night will lift the Blades up to fifth. Worryingly for Chris Wilder’s side, they have managed just one win in their last nine Championship encounters after drawing 1-1 at Derby on New Year’s Day. However, they did beat Ipswich 1-0 in the FA Cup last weekend.
Sheff Wednesday have brought in Dutchman Jos Luhukay in the hope of making a late dart towards the playoffs. At present, the Owls find themselves a whopping 13 points adrift of sixth-placed Leeds. Wednesday are also on a poor run in the league, winning just one of ten and losing 50% of those in the process, as they fell to a 3-0 defeat against lowly Burton Albion two weeks ago.
These two rivals played out a six-goal thriller in Sheff Utd’s favour at Hillsborough back in September (Sheff Utd won 4-2), and we could be in for more of the same on Friday. Back the hosts to win an entertaining game at Bramall Lane.
 
SECOND PREDICTION: TOTAL GOALS – FOUR
 
There have been 11 goals scored between them in their past three meetings. In the last matchup between the pair at Bramall Lane, the sides treated us to four goals(2-2 draw). Back four to be notched again on Friday.
 
HEAD TO HEAD
Sheff Wednesday have won just one of their past five against Sheff Utd.
