John Cofie should be fit to feature in the Capital One Cup on Saturday

Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson has dispelled fears new signing John Cofie will miss the start of the season.

Cofie was withdrawn during the first half of Saturday's friendly success at Morecambe after aggravating a hip problem.

But Wilson insists the youngster, on loan from Manchester United, should be fit for this weekend's Capital One Cup tie with Burton Albion.

"John had a bit of a problem there before the game but it wasn't enough to leave him out," Wilson told the Sheffield Star.

"When he took a bit of a whack on it again we decided to take him off because there's no point in taking unnecessary risks. It's nothing serious though."
