Match Preview

Blades bows for duo New Sheffield United signings Michael Doyle and Neill Collins are expected to make their debuts against Leicester. Doyle, 29, who signed a two-year deal last week after leaving Coventry on a free transfer, is likely to go straight into the midfield. Collins has arrived from Leeds for an undisclosed fee having had a previous loan spell at Bramall Lane. Skipper Chris Morgan is out for the rest of the season with knee cartilage damage but recent loan signings Shane Lowry and Joe Mattock have added strength to manager Micky Adams' defence, while another loan signing, striker Marcus Bent, is in contention for his second appearance following his arrival from Birmingham earlier this month. Defender Matt Lowton and midfielder Lee Williamson both recovered from groin problems to make the bench in the defeat to Norwich last time out. Stephen Jordan, sidelined since the end of November due to an ankle injury, returned to full training 10 days ago, but will have a run out with the reserves before being recalled to the first-team squad. Paul Gallagher could be fit for Leicester. The forward missed the home win over Millwall nine days ago with a knee injury sustained during the FA Cup replay defeat to Manchester City at Eastlands. Should Gallagher be fit it could pave the way for Martyn Waghorn to leave the club ahead of the 11pm transfer deadline, especially following the loan signing of Daniel Uchechi from FC Dender. Uchechi could be involved at Bramall Lane, while Chelsea left-back Patrick Van Aanholt is in line to make his debut. Franck Moussa, Matt Oakley and Steve Howard are options for boss Sven-Goran Eriksson should he wish to make further changes.

Match Report

King blunts Blades In-form Leicester made it four wins in their last five npower Championship matches as skipper Andy King's 11th goal of the season gave them a 1-0 win at Sheffield United. Wales midfielder King scored the only goal of the game at struggling Sheffield United to ensure boss Sven-Goran Eriksson's target of achieving automatic promotion might not be as optimistic as it first sounded. Defeat was harsh on the Blades, who were on top for the majority of the game but were once again made to pay for some poor finishing, with Foxes goalkeeper Chris Weale also in outstanding form. United boss Micky Adams is still yet to taste victory since being appointed in December but he will take heart from this performance against his former club. Leicester stunned the Bramall Lane faithful by open the scoring just three minutes in when Ayegbeni Yakubu slipped but prodded the ball into the path of the onrushing King, who lifted the ball over Steve Simonsen with a neat left-foot finish. The Blades responded and skipper Nick Montgomerie must have thought his venomous long-range drive was heading for the top corner until Weale intervened with a fine fingertip save. There was a blow for United 28 minutes in when former Foxes left-back Joe Mattock appeared to get his left foot stuck in the turf and went down in agony. Mattock, who was given a rough ride by the travelling supporters before sustaining the injury and while he was receiving treatment, was carried off with what appeared to be a serious injury. The home side could count themselves unfortunate not to be level when midfielder Lee Williamson's measured free-kick came back off the post five minutes before half-time. Elian Parrino also came close just before the break as United pressed for an equaliser. Marcus Bent missed a golden opportunity to score his first goal since rejoining the Blades nine minutes into the second half, with the much-travelled striker blazing over the crossbar from just six yards out. Leicester were riding their luck and the Blades felt they should have been awarded a penalty when the ball appeared to strike Yuki Abe's arm but the referee waved play on. United remained on the front foot and the unmarked Shane Lowry rose to meet a Mark Yeates corner but headed wastefully over the bar from eight yards out. It was all one-way traffic and Lowry fired over the bar when the ball fell nicely for him 12 minutes from time. Parrino had a header cleared off the line a minute from time and Weale made an outstanding defender to deny Parrino once again in stoppage time as the Foxes somehow hung on for all three points.
