Chris Wilder says the Blades won't change their positive approach, as the Blades prepare to welcome Aston Villa to Bramall Lane.

Looking ahead to tackling Steven Bruce's side, Wilder remarked: "We're playing a powerhouse in the division, this is a fantastic game.

"There is one home fixture and possibly one more, but this is certainly in the top five fixtures to be played at Bramall Lane this season.

"Aston Villa is a fantastic, powerful football club. It's been a turbulent summer, but they've kept the likes of Grealish, Chester and Kodjia and have added further."

The manager added: "They will be right up there and this what we wanted to get back into the Championship for. We will embrace it, we will be cute and clever as staff to pick the right team and the tactics, but really our approach won't change.

"Steve is a very experienced, knowledgeable and successful manager at this level. He has a record of getting teams out of this division."
