Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is expected to name an unchanged side again.

Wilson has no new injury or suspension worries as the Blades look to stay top of the table with a fifth straight league win.

On-loan Southampton striker Jonathan Forte remains sidelined with a groin problem that has ruled him out of the last two matches, while another loanee, Leeds forward Dominic Poleon, is hoping to make his first start after two substitute appearances.

Jamie Murphy should continue alongside forward Dave Kitson after scoring in the Blades' last two away matches, but defender Matt Hill may have to remain patient with a place on the substitutes' bench again following his recovery from a broken jaw.

Leyton Orient will check on Martin Rowlands ahead of the trip to the Blades.

Midfielder Rowlands was missing from the side beaten 1-0 by Crawley on Saturday due to a groin problem.

Striker Kevin Lisbie is on the mend after a hamstring injury but the trip is likely to come too soon, while defender Gary Sawyer misses out again with a knee problem.

Skipper Nathan Clarke was restored to the starting XI at the weekend for the first time since suffering a foot injury in November and should keep his place in defence.

Moses Odubajo and Shaun Batt are pushing for recalls if boss Russell Slade opts to make changes following a tough week which has seen Orient lose two league matches and go out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Pulis To Liverpool Might Just Work

One Mailboxer believes that Tony Pulis managing Liverpool isn't as silly as you might think. Plus Bournemouth aren't that romantic and we're all guilty of ignoring Everton...

It's Not As Simple As Losing Luis Suarez...
