Chris Wilder is looking forward to facing Tony Pulis's promoting chasing Middlesbrough at Bramall Lane.

Speaking ahead of the fixture, the Blades boss remarked: "Middlesbrough have a well-respected manager, who I've met a few times and whose company I enjoy.

"He's been very successful, working his way through the divisions and his record speaks for itself.

"He's managed in the Premier League for a number of years and also had success in this division too.

"Tony came into a strong club with plenty of good players and took them to the play-offs, he'll be wanting to achieve even more this time I suppose and Boro are going well."

Wilder added: "But it also shows how well we are going to be a touch above them and we will have to play very well to maintain that position, but we're capable of it.

"Our team is much changed since we last met. It was a disappointing night back in August, but I'm expecting a much tighter contest this time around."
