History of the Sheffield United v Peterborough United fixture

Sheff. Utd. play host to Peterborough United at Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The The Blades have drawn both of the previous games against their opponents, however.

The last time the two teams met at Sheff. Utd. was amazingly over twenty years ago, in August 1984, the The Blades carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Cup match.
