Chris Wilder hopes his side can build on the Boxing Day success over Derby County, when they face Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

And the Blades boss hopes to have a near fully fit squad to choose from for the clash against Tony Mowbray's Rovers.

He commented: "I'm delighted we've come through another tough game unscathed, we've got bumps and bruises but I expect everyone to be available come Saturday.

"We'll make changes in the next two or three games, we've got the cup tie coming up and we will utilise the squad, we'll keep looking.

"It's been a Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday and Sunday, but it does have a slightly different feel about it.

"We've got to look at Saturday, before we think about Tuesday and we've got an opportunity to get another big three points."

Wilder added: "Blackburn are similar to us from last year, they've got an experienced manager who has achieved a lot as a player too and he's got a good group.

"They bounced straight back which is always difficult to do. They've not really changed, and they've enjoyed some positive results.

"They've draw at Middlesbrough and everyone will know what happened at Elland Road, but they've got a knowledgeable manager who will want to see a reaction."
