The 2013/14 English football season gets underway with this League One clash between Sheffield United and Notts County at Bramall Lane.
The Blades are under new management as former Everton and Rangers defender David Weir has moved from his youth role at Goodison Park to take the reigns at the Yorkshire club.
Ex-United player David Unsworth is Weir’s assistant and between the two men they will have to deal with the pressure of the side being once again touted for promotion.
However, it’s the third time of asking for the team following relegation from the Championship in 2011 and since then it has been play-off heartbreak on both occasions.
Notts meanwhile are tipped for mid-table safety once again after finishing right in the middle last campaign in 12th position.
The Magpies are also under new management with the appointment of Chris Kiwomya and the former Ipswich ace will be looking to build on the steady foundations at the club.
Both sides will of course be wanting to announce the new season with a win, although home conditions and a supposedly stronger squad should see United picked as favourites.
