Is Rotherham United v Sheffield United on TV? Channel, streaming details and team news
The Manchester City loanee collided with Oli McBurnie with just over a minute gone during the celebrations for the Blades’ opening goal in the 3-3 draw in North Wales last weekend.
"I think he will be all right," revealed Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom on Thursday. "He's trained today [Thursday] although we have looked after him a little bit. He has come through it fine, so I am expecting him to be doing everything with us tomorrow [Friday]."
Daniel Jebbison will serve the first of his three-game suspension after being sent off for an off-the-ball incident against Wrexham. Sheffield United had considered an appeal to the red card but Heckingbottom explained: "We decided not to. We need conclusive evidence to overturn the decision. We can't find that. It's a tough one for me to take because he was having an impact in the games and we have not got him for three games now. I could have done with him."
Ciaran Clark and John Fleck are progressing from their injuries but won’t feature against Rotherham who were dealt a blow this week with the news January signing Sean Morrison would be out of for the season.
"He’s going for surgery on Saturday, he’s got a severe tear to his quad and he’ll go under knife, the outcome being he’ll be out for the rest of the season,” said Millers boss MAtt Taylor.
"First thoughts are for the player on the back of the 18 months he had out of the game with a cruciate injury. We expected some sort of kickback in terms of his body resisting playing and training again, he’d got through those two games fantastically well, so to do it in the manner he did, striking the ball with his left foot in training – certainly luck wasn’t on our side.”
