Chris Wilder has a near fully fit squad to select from for Tuesday's Sky Bet Championship encounter with QPR at Bramall Lane.

Leon Clarke has overcome an illness that struck him down last week, whilst those ineligible to face Leicester City in the Emirates FA Cup also come back into contention to feature against the R's.

Wilder remarked: "Leon is fine, he trained on Sunday and he'll be available, Wilson turned his ankle so will be checked.

"We've got Ched back, the ones that we're cup-tied are back too and that's a big boost for us.

"We've got a good group to pick from and we'll be ready to go on Tuesday night."

On the challenge of facing Ian Holloway's side, the United chief added: "This isn't a time to be taking things for granted based on league positions, you can't look at the table and try and predict games.

"We had a difficult time down there in October, they also beat Wolves at home too that week, so they are a team that can hurt you.

"They've got some good players and a very experienced manager. They will want to come and complete the double over us having deserved to win the first game."
