We travel to Sheffield tomorrow facing one of the most in form teams in the division as the Blades finally look like mounting a serious promotion push this term.
Will appear here later…
Sheffield United Team News:
Sheffield United have no fresh injury worries from the weekend.
Winger Duffy (calf), Freeman (back) and fellow midfielder Coutts (leg) will be assessed.
Defenders Chris Hussey and James Wilson are back in full training following their respective injuries and could return to contention.
Player to watch: Billy Sharp
Sharp has scored twelve goals so far this term and is by far the best striker in League 1.
Walsall Team News:
Walsall are waiting on the injury news to Kevin Toner who left the field o Saturday with manager Whitney insisting it was more an injury problem than tactical change.
The Saddlers boss will also have to decide whether to keep with Andreas Makris (who hit the bar) or bring back Simeon Jackson.
Only long term absentees Maz Kouhyar and Reece Flanagan are definitely ruled out.
Player to watch: Erhun Oztumer
Its hard to pick one player to watch at the minute given Oz has now lost some of his form, but on the big stage I will hope that Oz can show his brilliance once more…if he doesnt we wont score – simples.
