Sheffield United boss Nigel Adkins has welcomed the return of duo Ryan Flynn and Bob Harris.

Both played 45 minutes for United’s Under-21s on Wednesday as they make their way back to full fitness after injury.

And while both are unlikely to be involved in Saturday’s League One visit of Millwall, Adkins is just relieved to have them both back on the pitch.

“Bob and Ryan came back for the under-21’s so that’s really pleasing,” he said.

“That’s the first 45 minutes of a pre-season, if you like, for them.

“Ryan is a little bit closer to where we want in terms of squad selection than Bob. That’s understandable. For him, it’s all about building that strength up.”
