Goalkeeper George Long (England Under-21s), defender Sean McGinty (Republic of Ireland Under-21s) and striker Marlon King (Jamaica) have all been selected by their respective countries this week.

Mark Howard stepped in for Long in the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Hartlepool and is likely to resume, while young forward Joe Ironside is in contention for his second league start of the season.

Florent Cuvelier is still struggling with an unspecified knock that kept him out on Tuesday night and fellow midfielder Callum McFadzean (ankle) is expected to miss out again as the Blades chase their first win in 13 matches.
