Bury manager Kevin Blackwell has no fresh injury or suspension concerns for the visit of former club Sheffield United.

Blackwell, who was sacked by the Blades in 2010, could include new signing Jeanvion Yulu-Matondo in his squad, provided the club gain international clearance in time.

The Shakers are hopeful they will be able to extend the loan of Wolves defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell after his latest short-term spell ended on February 10.

Midfielder David Worrall came off the bench during Saturday's 2-2 draw with Brentford and is pushing for a return to the starting XI after recovering from a thigh problem.

Full-back Euan Holden is still awaiting his debut having joined the club on non-contract terms.

Defenders Phil Picken (knee) and Adam Lockwood (groin) remain out for the season along with midfielder Shane Byrne (blood disorder).

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up.

The Blades secured their first win in six league games at Shrewsbury on Saturday and Wilson has no other new injury or suspension problems.

Defender Matt Hill returned to the substitutes' bench at the weekend after recovering from a broken jaw and is pushing for a recall, while deadline-day transfer signing Barry Robson is also hoping to play a bigger part after replacing Jamie Murphy for the final 15 minutes.

Dave Kitson is likely to resume his partnership up front with recent loan signing Jonathan Forte, with teenager Joe Ironside in contention again after making his seventh league appearance of the season at Shrewsbury off the bench.

The Blades, who have closed to within five points of top two Tranmere and Doncaster, are chasing their first home win of the year.
