Sheffield United Vs Burnley, Sat 16 Oct 2010

Published Add your comment

Sheffield United skipper Chris Morgan is expected to return to the starting line-up for the home clash with Burnley.

The central defender has missed the last three games due to a hamstring problem, but came through 45 minutes for the reserves unscathed in midweek and is likely to partner Nyron Nosworthy at the back, with Kyle Bartley still nursing a broken cheekbone.

But the Blades will still be without striker Jamie Ward, who sits out the last game of his three-match ban following his recent dismissal at Leeds.

Blades boss Gary Speed hopes to have fellow front man Ched Evans back in contention following a groin strain, though, and has no other new injury or suspension problems.

Defender Rob Kozluk is still out with a jarred knee and long-term absentees Lee Williamson, Darius Henderson and Ryan France are still out.

Burnley defender Clarke Carlisle is unavailable for the trip as he begins a three-match suspension.

The Clarets centre-back was dismissed during the recent 1-1 draw at Millwall and could be replaced by Michael Duff or Leon Cort.

Both men played just over an hour for the reserves in midweek and boss Brian Laws must decide who will partner Andre Bikey in the heart of defence.

Bikey sustained a rib injury against Millwall and was replaced after just 14 minutes, but the Cameroon international looks certain to be passed fit at Bramall Lane.

Elsewhere, Dean Marney will hope to keep his place ahead of Graham Alexander in midfield and Kevin McDonald has joined Scunthorpe on a month-long loan deal.
