Chris Wilder admits he could make changes for Friday's clash at Leeds and he believes all the fit members of his squad are 'ready' to play their part.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the Blades boss was keen to praise his players for the quality they are showing during the week.
He remarked: "There are always selection issues when you have a group of 20 odd lads, all of whom want to play.

"The quality of the sessions we put on between Monday and Friday are outstanding and possibly the quality is the best since I arrived here.

"We've always spoken about the importance of training how we want to play and that doesn't mean we go round two footing each other, we train properly and the attitude of the players has been first-class."

And Wilder says that means all his squad are at a level where they would be able to step into the starting XI if selected.

He added: "We've got some big decisions for Friday night and more for next Tuesday at QPR, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

"The players are consistently lifting the standards and it is a decent group of players who are driving each other on.

"Training at Shirecliffe on a Wednesday morning isn't anything like a Friday night in front of the Sky cameras at Elland Road, but all the players can do is stand in front of me and so me they're ready."
