Football - Wilson to keep the faith

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up for the midweek game at Bury.

The Blades secured their first win in six league games at Shrewsbury on Saturday and Wilson has no other new injury or suspension problems.

Defender Matt Hill returned to the substitutes' bench at the weekend after recovering from a broken jaw and is pushing for a recall, while deadline-day transfer signing Barry Robson is also hoping to play a bigger part after replacing Jamie Murphy for the final 15 minutes.

Dave Kitson is likely to resume his partnership up front with recent loan signing Jonathan Forte, with teenager Joe Ironside in contention again after making his seventh league appearance of the season at Shrewsbury off the bench.

The Blades, who have closed to within five points of top two Tranmere and Doncaster, are chasing their first home win of the year.
