Sheffield United manager Gary Speed has ordered a complete review of the club's training practices after another of his players fell victim to a hamstring injury.
Andy Reid, on loan from Sunderland, was hoping to make his home debut for the Blades in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Ipswich, but sustained a hamstring problem during preparation and was forced to withdraw from the squad.
Speed said: "It's only a slight problem. Andy hasn't torn his hamstring. But while it certainly is bad luck, we've also been suffering far too many hamstring injuries for my liking of late and that's something we've got to examine."
He added: "We'll be taking a look at everything we do during training and before and after games with the physios and fitness staff to see if there's something we can change.
"Hopefully Andy will be back soon. We'll just have to wait and see."
