Chris Wilder says his players know the team for Friday's Sheffield derby at Bramall Lane, although the boss was keeping his cards close to his chest when addressing the media.

Looking ahead he remarked: "We've got everyone fit and raring to go. There is nobody in the treatment room and we've trained at full speed all week.

"I've had some difficult decisions to make regarding team selection, but we have to make them and hopefully our best team will be good enough to win a Sheffield derby.

"The players know the team, we always tell them as part of our preparation, we rely if ever pick it on the day of a game."

Wilder added: "The players understand and those that are playing have to get their heads round it, as do the ones not starting, I've always worked this way to give them time to focus.

"Mark Duffy has been an important player for us in my time here, he's been outstanding and we've lost a bit of momentum in recent games.

"Basham coming back is great news too and throughout the squad we've had difficult decisions to make, but that's what I've wanted."
