Blades trio set for surgery

Published Add your comment

Sheffield United trio Darius Henderson, Stephen Quinn and Lee Williamson could all undergo surgery before the last game of the season.

The Blades will bring the curtain down on a disappointing campaign at Ipswich on Sunday and all three players could be missing as they look to resolve long-standing injuries.

Midfielder Williamson, signed from Watford for around £500,000 last summer, has missed large chunks of the season due to a back problem.

Striker Henderson has a hernia and midfielder Quinn requires surgery to investigate a possible nerve problem in his foot, which has forced the Irishman to play through the pain barrier in recent weeks.

The Blades have been dogged by a long list of injuries to key players throughout the season, with manager Kevin Blackwell struggling on several occasions to name a full quota of substitutes on match day.
