Sheffield United will prepare for the Sky Bet League One season with games against Northampton Town and Huddersfield Town.
The Blades will face Northampton Town at Sixfields on Tuesday 22nd July (kick-off:7.45pm) and Huddersfield Town at Bramall Lane on Tuesday 29th July (kick-off: 7.45pm)
Northampton manager Chris Wilder said this about Sheffield United’s visit:
“This will be our first game at Sixfields of pre-season and it should be an attractive one. It will be a tough game, Sheffield United had a fantastic second half of last season and got to the FA Cup semi final, they will be looking to take that momentum into the new season and it will be a good test for us.”
The last time they played the Cobblers they won 2-0 in a League Cup tie in 1990. While the last time they played Huddersfield Town it was in the playoff final in 2012 when they lost on penalties.
