Sheffield United will recall on-loan goalkeeper Mark Bunn to their starting line-up for the home clash with Nottingham Forest.

Manager Kevin Blackwell was forced to leave out the Blackburn keeper completely at Plymouth on Saturday as he already had the maximum number of on-loan players in his match-day squad.

But Wolves counterpart Carl Ikeme has returned to Molineux after completing just two games for the Blades as he has sustained a calf injury.

Blackwell will also be without leading goalscorer Darius Henderson, who missed the 1-0 win at Home Park due to a hip injury which is expected to keep him out until Christmas.

Defender Tony Kallio, on loan from Fulham, is set to retain his place in the starting line-up, while Derek Geary and Gary Naysmith, both back from long-term knee injuries, are likely to take their place on the bench again.

Forest manager Billy Davies has no fresh injury worries.

The in-form Reds head into the match unbeaten in 11 matches and looking to build on their 5-1 drubbing of rivals Leicester at the weekend.

However, Davies will have to do without holding midfielder Guy Moussi, who is still nursing an ankle injury.

Julian Bennett will also be missing as he struggles to return from a long-term knee injury.

Meanwhile, striker Joe Garner and defender James Perch are looking to push their way back into the squad.

The duo were overlooked at the weekend but are hoping to make the 18-man matchday squad.
