Goalkeeper Loach was on England Under-21 duty as the Hornets secured a 2-0 extra-time win over Barnet in the Carling Cup and will come straight back in at Bramall Lane despite a solid performance from understudy Richard Lee.

Skipper DeMerit, who was away with the USA, will return at centre-half with Adrian Mariappa reverting to right-back and Lee Hodson, who made his first start in midweek, dropping back to the bench.

Midfielder Jenkins should also return to the starting XI after having his first taste of international duty for England's Under-20s.

John Eustace partnered Scott Severin in Jenkins' absence at Underhill.
