Football - Wilson set to call on key pair

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson hopes to include Kevin McDonald in his squad for the game at Crawley following injury.

The Scottish midfielder missed last week's goalless draw with Tranmere due to an ankle problem, but has trained this week and could feature if he suffers no adverse reaction.

Striker Dave Kitson is another key player for the Blades who Wilson hopes to call on this weekend. The former Stoke forward had been sidelined for almost two months with a hamstring injury before stepping off the bench for the last 27 minutes against Tranmere and he could get a longer run out on Saturday.

Wilson has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side bid to go back to the top of the table, but goalkeeper Mark Howard (thigh) and defender Lescinel Jean-Francois (knee) remain sidelined despite returning to training.
