Sheffield United will be without Ched Evans, Jamie Ward and Lee Williamson for their home clash with former manager Neil Warnock's QPR.

Strikers Evans (collarbone) and Ward and midfielder Williamson (both hamstring) were all forced off in the midweek defeat at Peterborough and will be sidelined for several weeks.

But manager Kevin Blackwell will be boosted by the return from suspension of forward Darius Henderson and could recall Henri Camara to his starting line-up, with Mark Yeates or Stephen Quinn stepping in for Williamson.

Blackwell has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side look to get their play-off push back on track after back-to-back defeats, but long-term absentees Gary Naysmith, Ryan France (both knee) and Derek Geary (ankle) remain sidelined.

Warnock could name an unchanged side at his old club.

Warnock has picked the same line-up for both his games in charge and registered two wins.

Midfield duo Gavin Mahon and Martin Rowlands are the only injury absentees with long-term knee problems.

Winger Lee Cook returned on the bench against Plymouth on Tuesday night after recovering from a virus and will be involved again.

Striker Marcus Bent looks set to be the odd man out once more with Warnock only able to pick a maximum of five loanees. Carl Ikeme, Matt Hill, Adel Taarabt, Tamas Priskin and Jay Simpson have so far been named ahead of the Birmingham man.

Midfielder Mikele Leigertwood, like Warnock, will face his former club.
