Sunderland vs Sheffield United LIVE
Hello and welcome to our live blog coverage of Sunderland vs Sheffield United from the Stadium of Light. After Sunday's morale-boosting win at Norwich City, the Black Cats head into tonight's game on a high and looking to reassert their play-off credentials against the side second the Championship table.
Paul Heckingbottom's Blades have had something of a wobble of late, allowing Middlesbrough in third to close the gap, and will themselves want to ease any nerves with an away win. Sunderland will be without Amad tonight, but Tony Mowbray could have Alex Pritchard available, while Dennis Cirkin is hoping to be given the all-clear to return to training this week.
A win tonight could move Sunderland up to eighth in what is still a tightly-contested promotion race. James Hunter is at the ground to bring you all the latest as it happens, plus the post-match reaction and analysis.
