Chris Wilder is looking forward to Saturday's home encounter against Daniel Farke's Norwich City.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the Blades boss remarked: "They've had two close games. They went and got a result at Birmingham on the opening day before losing narrowly to a team that's just come out of the Premier League.

"They will be to get their season up and running and we enjoyed two tasty fixtures against them last season, I expect something similar again.

"Both teams will be going all out to win the fixture and we want to get our first home win of the season."

The manager added: "Daniel (Farke) is a good guy, we enjoyed a drink after both games last season and I've seen him a few times since. We live and learn, I said things after both games that at the time I thought were right, both were tight games.

"It's going to be another difficult game at the weekend, they're established in the division and they are a proper Championship football club who have recruited well this summer."
