Jamie McAllister is set to be fit for Bristol City when they host Sheffield United.

The left-back suffered a shin injury during last weekend's 4-1 defeat to West Brom but is expected to play against Kevin Blackwell's men.

Fellow defender Bradley Orr is out, though, having failed to shake off the Achilles injury that has kept him sidelined for a month. Cole Skuse will continue at right-back.

Scotland striker David Clarkson will be hopeful of forcing his way into the side after the West Brom loss, while manager Gary Johnson's son Lee will also be aiming for a starting berth.

City boast a 19-game unbeaten home league run going into the game, with their last defeat at Ashton Gate coming against Burnley on December 20 last year.

Sheffield United will be without Henri Camara for the clash but are boosted by new loan pair Carl Ikeme and Toni Kallio.

Camara scored in his first start for the Blades in last week's win over Peterborough, but is struggling with a hamstring injury.

Wolves goalkeeper Ikeme and Fulham centre-half Kallio both arrived on one-month loan deals in time to be included in Kevin Blackwell's squad.

The Blades will be without Derek Geary and Gary Naysmith, who have both encountered slight niggles on their way back from long-term knee injuries, while Lee Williamson and Ched Evans face late tests as they have both been unwell.

But Darius Henderson is available again after his one-game ban and both Nick Montgomery (knee) and Richard Cresswell (ribs) could also return.
