Team News: Three new boys on Sheff United bench
Sheffield United are unchanged from their last Championship outing for this evening's meeting with Sheffield Wednesday, while the visitors make two alterations.

Sheffield United have included their three new recruits on the bench for this evening's meeting with arch-rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Bramall Lane.

Ryan Leonard, Lee Evans and James Wilson are all included in the matchday squad after arriving at the club this week, meaning that John Lundstram keeps his place in midfield.

The Blades, seeking a first league double in this fixture since 2006, revert back to the starting lineup that featured against Derby County on New Year's Day in their most recent Championship outing.

In terms of the visitors, new boss Jos Luhukay appears to have matched United by going with a 3-5-2 formation, making the bold choice to start with three at the back.

Glenn Loovens, Daniel Pudil and Frederico Venancio link up, while Liam Palmer and Morgan Fox will operate in wing-back positions as the Owls look to make up the 12-point gap on their opponents.

Pudil is one of two new faces from the FA Cup tie against Carlisle United last weekend, with Jordan Rhodes also coming in from the off to partner Lucas Joao in the frontline.

Sheffield United (3-5-2): Moore; Baldock, Basham, Stearman; O'Connell, Stevens, Fleck, Lundstram, Duffy; Clarke, Donaldson
Subs: Blackman, Sharp, Wilson, Wright, Leonard, Evans, Lafferty

Sheffield Wednesday (3-5-2): Wildsmith; Venancio, Loovens, Pudil; Palmer, Jones, Wallace, Reach, Fox; Joao, Rhodes
Subs: Dawson, Butterfield, Nuhiu, Matias, Boyd, Clare, Thornley
