Sheffield United's Championship clash with city rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough has been put back 24 hours.

This season's second Steel City derby, initially scheduled for Saturday, April 17, will now take place on Sunday, April 18, with a 1pm kick-off following police advice on safety grounds.

The Blades won this season's first encounter between the two sides 3-2 in September after racing into a 3-0 half-time lead at Bramall Lane.
