The Blades were victorious as they secured a 1-0 victory in the two sides’ Championship meeting at Bramall Lane in October, before taking the win by the same score in the FA Cup in January.

Ipswich come into the game on the back of two-straight away wins, though, following their successes against Preston and then Sheffield Wednesday, and will be looking to back those up with a good display at home.

Mick McCarthy’s men have won just once in Suffolk this year - the 1-0 victory over Leeds in January - and will no any lingering play-off hopes will require a positive result against Chris Wilder’s men.

Following today’s game, the Blues take on relegation-threatened Hull on Tuesday night under the Portman Road lights.
