Brian Laws' Owls completed the double over Kevin Blackwell's red and white wizards last time around, amazingly the first time in just under 100 years! South Yorkshire Police have requested for the tie at Bramall Lane in mid-September to go ahead two and a half hours earlier than originally scheduled.

Meanwhile United's Coca-Cola Championship fixture at Pride Park against Derby County has been preceded to a 1:00pm kick-off, on the same date (Saturday 12th September 2009). Also, the showdown at the new Cardiff City Stadium will be played at 7:45pm on Wednesday 24th March 2010.

Already confirmed today was that the tasty game at The Riverside has been chosen for live television coverage by Sky Sports, and in a result will kick-off a day earlier than everyone else. Click here for more.
