Football - Blades short at back

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough has another defensive crisis for his side's game at Swindon.

PA Sport Report

Clough, recently short of left-backs, will be without suspended centre-half Harry Maguire, who starts a two-game ban for reaching 10 yellow cards, while Matt Hill remains sidelined with a hamstring injury and Terry Kennedy has a knee problem.

Another defender, Bob Harris, is still struggling with a thigh strain, so Kieron Freeman will continue at the back, while teenage midfielder Connor Dimaio hopes to feature again after making his debut as a late substitute in the midweek win at Crawley.

The FA Cup semi-finalists have won eight of their last 10 league matches.
