Lowry back in the reckoning
Sheffield United defender Shane Lowry could return to the starting line-up following suspension as manager Micky Adams ponders changes at Nottingham Forest.
Lowry, on loan from Aston Villa, has missed the last two games and although Adams has no new injury or suspension worries, he could be tempted to tinker with his line-up as he chases his first win in charge at Bramall Lane in 14 games.
Midfielder Nick Montgomery (knee), striker Sam Vokes (hamstring), on loan from Wolves, and another loanee, West Brom defender Joe Mattock (ankle/knee), all returned to the substitutes' bench on Saturday and could be included in Adams' side.
Skipper Chris Morgan, fellow defenders Andy Taylor and Ryan France, goalkeeper Richard Wright and striker Darius Henderson remain sidelined.
The Blades are second-bottom of the table, six points adrift of safety with 11 games remaining.
Forest boss Billy Davies hopes to welcome back influential skipper Paul McKenna.
The midfielder was absent due to a knee injury as the Reds` proud 36-game unbeaten league run at the City Ground was ended by Hull on Saturday.
"Paul should be okay for Tuesday. That is a boost because we missed him against Hull," said Davies. "We missed him for his leadership, his positional play and his organisation."
McKenna was one of seven key players sidelined by injury on Saturday, with Guy Moussi, Nathan Tyson, Dexter Blackstock, Robbie Findley, Kelvin Wilson and Joel Lynch also missing out.
Davies added: "We are probably looking at Swansea (on March 19) for a number of the players to come back. We could be looking at Tyson and Moussi for that game."
Dele Adebola, Garath McCleary and David McGoldrick are available for recalls should Davies wish to make further changes at Bramall Lane.
Adams celebrates long-awaited win
Micky Adams' long wait for his first win as Sheffield United finally came to an end as they came from behind to put another dent in Nottingham Forest's automatic promotion hopes with a 2-1 success.
The Blades' winless run under Adams looked set to be extended to 14 games when Dele Adebola gave Forest the lead just before half-time.
But they rallied in the second half and despite Daniel Bogdanovic having a penalty saved by Lee Camp, United secured their first npower Championship win since December 18 courtesy courtesy of on-loan striker Sam Vokes' first goal for the club and a Matt Lowton header.
The victory boosts the Blades' hopes of avoid relegation, while Forest are without a win in five games as their hopes of finishing in the top two suffered another setback. The Blades fashioned the first opportunity when striker Bogdanovic did well to pick out the onrushing Stephen Quinn, but the midfielder took a heavy touch as he surged into the penalty area and the chance was gone.
Both sides struggled to keep hold of the ball in a drab first half but United fashioned another half-chance 13 minutes in when Richard Cresswell crossed from the right and Quinn stabbed his shot wide at the far post.
Former Sheffield Wednesday Marcus Tudgay had a chance to silence the Blades fans who booed his every touch but the forward fired his right-foot strike wide from just outside the area in the 29th minute.
It just as the first half seemed destined to finish goalless Forest took the lead four minutes before the break with a goal out of nothing.
The United defence allowed the ball to bounce in the penalty area and Adebola used his considerable frame to control the ball on his chest and spin his marker then tuck the ball home with his left foot from six yards out.
Cresswell spurned an excellent chance to equalise three minutes into the second half when the ball bounced nicely for him in the penalty area but he scuffed his shot wide.
But United must have thought their luck was to change after 65 minutes when Chris Gunter upended Bogdanovic and referee Tony Bates pointed to the penalty spot.
Bogdanovic picked himself to take the resulting spot-kick but Camp guessed the right way and palmed away his tame right-foot effort.
Forest boss Billy Davies brought on new signing Kris Boyd for Adebola with 20 minutes remaining, but two minutes later United were level when Vokes broke into the penalty area and tucked the ball under Camp with a composed right-foot finish from a tight angle.
And there was worse to come for Forest when Quinn swung a corner over from the left nine minutes from time and Lawton rose to plant a header beyond Camp and leave Bramall Lane rocking.
