The Bees leapfrogged United into second place on Saturday after Sam Saunders' penalty secured a 1-0 win over Preston, while the Blades crashed to a shock 4-0 defeat at Stevenage.

Rosler's side were beaten 2-0 at Bramall Lane last season but look a far stronger outfit this time around.

"Sheffield United will be up for us," admitted Rosler. "They will try to make up for their defeat.

"It will be a top-of-the-table clash, a difficult place to go.

"We were clearly second best there last year. I look forward to showing that we have improved over 12 months."
