Sheffield United will have to arrange another League One game after progressing into the last eight of the FA Cup.

The South Yorkshire derby against Rotherham United on Saturday March 8th will now have to be rearranged with the FA Cup taking preference over league fixtures and falling on the same weekend.

Whilst it is great for United to still be involved in the FA Cup, the postponement of the Rotherham game means another midweek fixture adding to their already hectic schedule.

United already face a minimum of eight games in March and at the moment they have just one midweek free between next weekend and the second week of April and that may be needed for a FA Cup replay.

The blades currently have to face a minimum of 19 games in the final ten weeks of the season.

  • Yes, the cup is wonderful, but we are already 4 league games behind some teams. A couple of wins would ease things a bit, lets see if the Forest win provides the missing league impetuous.
