Blades v Burton - team news

10 August 2012

John Cofie (hip) is Danny Wilson's only real injury concern ahead of the Capital One Cup clash against Burton Albion.

Cofie was withdrawn from the action against Morecambe at the Globe Arena last Saturday as a precaution, but he is rated as doubtful to face the Brewers and Wilson says he won't be risked if not 100 per cent.

Apart from the Manchester United loanee, the Blades boss expects to have a full squad at his disposal, despite a 'number of bumps and bruises'.

Darryl Westlake, Tony McMahon, Matt Hill, Shaun Miller and Friday's signing, Nick Blackman, could all make their competitive debuts.

Meanwhile, Albion boss Gary Rowett has a number of injury concerns including Calvin Zola, Aaron Webster and Jacques Maghoma.

One Brewer that seems set to miss the season curtain raiser in winger Jimmy Phillips, although Billy Kee has made a timely return to full fitness.
