Blades set for McDonald boost

Mon, 19 Mar 15:09:15 2012

Sheffield United midfielder Kevin McDonald could make a surprise return to the squad at Notts County.

McDonald, sidelined since mid-February with a hamstring injury, returned to full training on Monday and could be included in Danny Wilson's squad if he suffers no reaction.

Fellow midfielder Nick Montgomery has joined Millwall on loan until the end of the season and defender Lecsinel Jean-Francois sustained a season-ending knee injury earlier this month.

But another defender, Andy Taylor, could return to contention after being rested, while strikers James Beattie and Richard Cresswell and defender Marcus Williams are all pushing for recalls after stepping off the substitutes' bench in the weekend draw with Tranmere.

Wilson has no new injury or suspension problems as the Blades bid to stay ahead of the chasing pack and retain second place.
