Championship new boys face stern Blades test

Last updated : 17 June 2009 By Bladesmadeditor


Boro were relegated from the top flight recently, and prepare for life in the second tier. Sheffield United will face a top flight relegated side for the second season running, with Birmingham the hosts at St Andrews just under a year ago. The curtain raiser this time around will occur at The Riverside Stadium.

The intriguing Steel City Derby always throws up interesting and entertaining games, this season the first is at Bramall Lane on the 19th September 2009, and the return fixture at Hillsborough is the third to last game of the campaign, on the 17th April 2010. The last time Utd faced Wednesday on home soil first, they gained promotion to the Premiership and overcame the Owls twice.

Our Boxing Day fixture sees us travel to Leicester, and the final game being a long away trip to Portman Road. Kevin Blackwell's men will encounter Newcastle on Halloween and on a Monday  night, the 5th April 2010.

Blades Mad unfortunately aren't able to publish the full fixture list anywhere on the website. Websites and organisations must have a licence from the FootballDataCo, and most, if not every fan website does not have one. If you are a poster on our messageboard, please do not publish the fixture list as a whole as you will be fined, and the FootballDataCo will be keeping an eye on fan websites like this very one. You will be able to point out key games such as first and last games, boxing day games and derbies etc on the messageboard, but nothing else. Sorry for the inconvenience.
