The Steel City Derby returns this weekend as the two Sheffield clubs battle at Hillsborough for the first set of bragging rights of the year.
The Championship has not seen this fixture for a little bit of time – owing to United’s spell in League 1 – but as soon as their promotion was confirmed last season many couldn’t wait for it to be back on the schedule.
For sure, then, it’s going to be a superb game at Hillsborough between two sides who are looking like play-off contenders at the very least and here at Football League World we’ve been reflecting on some brilliant moments from the fixture.
Indeed, it just wouldn’t be the Steel City Derby if Marcus Tudgay did not get mentioned and we’ve dug out this clip of his rocket against the Blades at Bramall Lane:
It’s the STEEL CITY derby on Sunday!
Who remembers this screamer from Marcus Tudgay for Sheffield Wednesday?

Undoubtedly, Wednesday fans will be hoping for more of this on the weekend as they look to reel in their rivals who have had the better start to the campaign so far.
Indeed, Wednesday are currently just two points off of the Blades who reside in the last play-off space at the moment and so a win would obviously be significant in these early stages of the campaign.
Thoughts, Wednesday fans? Let us know below!
