United's team will show changes in Saturday's encounter with Reading.

Chris Basham remains suspended and there is still time for Jack O'Connell to prove his fitness, but the Blades boss has ruled out George Baldock, who picked up a calf injury in midweek

"He's going to miss out," said the Blades chief. "It is a disappointment, he has an issue with his calf, but we are hoping it is not long term, ever since he's been back he's been outstanding.

"We've got a few people who can play there, it opens it up for someone. There's the option of Kieron Freeman and Martin Cranie played there in an impressive second half on Wednesday.

"I bang on about the players on the outside of the starting XI and how important they are, particularly at this stage of the season. The team that plays looks after itself and they don't need motivation, we need to look after the players on the outside to ensure they are ready when called upon."
