Bramall Lane is the destination for Sky Sports' #10in10 coverage this Sunday, when Sheffield United host Coventry City in a midday kick-off.

Sunday's clash will be the 60th in the history of the two clubs, dating way back to the 1936/37 campaign. That maiden fixture in Sheffield finished in a 2-2 draw, which was also the outcome in the most recent meeting.

Coventry held a two-goal lead over the 10-man Blades back in February, but a late show from Sheffield United secured a point towards their Play-Off bid.

This year, it's Tony Mowbray's Coventry who are chasing promotion, sitting second after 20 games in a closely-contested division. One man responsible for their fine recent form is Jacob Murphy, who was named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for November.

The Blades are only six points away from the Play-Off places, but currently lie further back in 12th.

If Sheffield United are to pick up three points on Sunday, it would bring the teams level in the history books. After 59 meetings, it's 20-19 to Coventry, with 20 draws to boot.

Don't miss it!
