Blackwell made four changes to the side that drew at Cardiff on the opening day for the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Hartlepool due to the absences of suspended defender James Lowton and Daniel Bogdanovic (Malta), Mihkel Aksalu (Estonia) and Ched Evans (Wales), who were away on international duty.

Youth-team products Kingsley James and Jordan Chappell both made their first senior starts for the Blades at Victoria Park but are expected to make way, while Arsenal defender Kyle Bartley, who has returned for a second loan spell at Bramall Lane, could return to the starting line-up for the Championship clash against Rangers at Bramall Lane after his late substitute appearance on Tuesday.
