team news to come...

Sheffield United v Oldham Athletic

Team news: The Blades are again without injured midfielders Nick Montgomery and Kevin McDonald but Danny Wilson is considering a recall for Stephen Quinn after the winger scored the winning goal as substitute in midweek against Scunthorpe. Striker Richard Cresswell is also poised for a recall with James Beattie returning to the bench.

League Two

Barnet v Rotherham United

Team news: The Millers are boosted by the return of on loan Chelsea goalkeeper Rhys Taylor who has recovered from an elbow injury so manager Andy Scott will have to decide whether to keep faith with Andy Warrington. Winger Gareth Evans is still out with a back injury and defender Luke Foster (knee) is also unavailable.

Dagenham and Redbridge v Bradford City

Team news: David Syers (back), Simon Ramsden (hamstring) and Michael Flynn (thigh) are all missing for the trip to Essex but, otherwise, manager Phil Parkinson reports just niggling problems for a couple of his players.

Blue Square Bet Premier

York City v Hayes

Team news: David McGurk’s return to first-team action for the Minstermen has been delayed by the recurrance of a throat problem. The centre-back was due back for the visit of Hayes and Yeading after being sidelined since New Year’s Day with a leg injury. But this latest problem means he cannot partake in any contact sport for three weeks. Fellow defender Chris Smith begins a two-match ban.
