Team News: Sheffield United
Sander Berge (Hamstring Injury), Jack O'Connell (Knee Surgery) and Oliver McBurnie (Metatarsal Fracture) aren’t available for Sheffield United gaffer Slaviša Jokanović.
Team News: Millwall
In an otherwise available group of players, there is just the one fitness worry for the Millwall gaffer Gary Rowett to be concerned with. Maikel Kieftenbeld (Knock) misses out for this game.
We’re inclined to think that Millwall will have their work cut out to score against this Sheffield United side who we reckon will score & stay on top.
That’s why our selection here is for a very even match with a 1-0 winning score for Sheffield United when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
