SHEFFIELD UNITED manager Nigel Clough has revealed mixed news on the injury front, with Matty Done and Terry Kennedy struggling ahead of this weekend’s trip to relegation-haunted Leyton Orient.

Done is continuing to be troubled by a groin problem and will undergo an injection with an eye on possibly involving him in the final regular game of the season at Chesterfield.

The ex-Rochdale man is unlikely to feature at the weekend, according to Clough, with young defender Kennedy (knee) also very doubtful.

The centre-half failed to reappear for the second-half of Saturday’s draw with Bradford City after aggravating a knee injury, having been dogged by similar problems in his career thus far.

Ryan Flynn (hamstring) is also a doubt, but Jay McEveley may back in the fold, with the Liverpudlian on the mend after a dislocated shoulder.

But better news could see Bob Harris return from a groin injury, with the Scot having undergone plenty of one on one rehabilitation work.

He could return to training on Friday, Clough revealed.

The Blades need a point to be mathematically sure of confirming their play-off place in League One at Orient on Saturday.

Rochdale, who face MK Dons at the weekend, maintained their slim top-six hopes with victory over the O’s last night.
