The home side will look to maintain their assault on automatic promotion when they take on Yorkshire Rivals Rotherham United tomorrow evening. 

Following a fantastic 5-2 victory against Burnley last time out, Heckingbottom's men are hoping to go level on points with the Clarets.

For the newly promoted visitors, they are without a win in their last five league matches, so will be searching for an upset.

Rotherham find themselves in 17th position in the league table and will be aiming to stride further away from the relegation zone with a win at Bramall Lane.

The Millers are on a run of three straight defeats under Matthew Taylor, which have all been decided by a single goal which will come as a major frustration to the manager.

In their last outing, Rotherham were on the end of a narrow 2-1 loss to Norwich, as a goal from Oliver Rathbone was cancelled out by efforts from Kenny McLean and Aaron Ramsey.

The last time the two Yorkshire sides met was in March 2019 where Sheffield United were victorious with a 2-0 home win.
