Paul Heckingbottom‘s side enter this encounter on the back of an emphatic 4-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday, which lifted the Blades into the playoff positions.
Morgan Gibbs-White, George Baldock and Billy Sharp had that game wrapped up within the first 40 minutes, but there was still time for Gibbs-White to add to his tally in the second half.
Apart from dismantling Peterborough United in September, that was Sheffield United’s biggest win margin of the campaign, and goalkeeper Wes Foderingham kept his fourth clean sheet in a row.
Heckingbottom’s team have only conceded 11 goals on their own patch this season, suggesting that they will be confident about keeping Blackburn at bay on Wednesday, giving them a strong chance of collecting another three points.
With at least one game in hand on the three other teams currently occupying a space in the playoff positions, a win against Blackburn this week will put the Blades in a powerful position to climb higher up the table and cement a top-six finish.
David McGoldrick, Jack O’Connell and Rhian Brewster will remain absent from Sheffield United’s squad due to injury, but the trio could all return to action next month.
After such an impressive display against Swansea on Saturday, Heckingbottom could opt for the same starting 11, meaning that Sharp will continue to lead the line, with Baldock and Rhys Norrington-Davies providing width from their wing-back positions.
Gibbs-White, who is on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, is in fine form, and he is certain to start alongside Oliver Norwood, Sander Berge and John Fleck in a midfield quartet.
Key man Diaz will remain sidelined for Blackburn after coming off injured against West Brom, while Tayo Edun, Bradley Dack and Poveda will all be absent due to injury also.
Centre-back Darragh Lenihan will be able to return to the side after serving his one-match suspension, and Harry Pickering and Khadra are also expected to be named in the starting 11.

With Pickering’s return from injury, Ryan Giles is expected to move further up the field, having shown his versatility playing in different roles down the left wing in recent weeks, and the 22-year-old offers a big attacking threat for Rovers.
