Sheffield United midfielder Michael Doyle is relishing the League One promotion battle with city rivals Wednesday.

The Blades and Gary Megson's Owls are going head-to-head for automatic promotion from League One and have regularly been leapfrogging each other in the table.

Danny Wilson's side jumped into the second automatic promotion spot on Tuesday night following their 4-0 win over Yeovil.

Doyle said: "It's great, you look at the doom and gloom about last season with us fighting relegation and Sheffield Wednesday having a poor second half to the season.

"It must be great for the fans to have that rivalry and overtaking each other and both pushing for those top two spots .

"It's great for the city and nice to have some success for both sides and puts a bit of spice into it."
