Match Preview

Beattie to wait for second coming Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is expected to resist the temptation to include James Beattie in his squad for the home game with Rochdale. Beattie recently returned for a second stint at Bramall Lane following his release in the summer from Rangers and is currently working on his fitness. But the 33-year-old has been battling illness and a calf strain this week and may have to wait longer for his second debut. Wilson has no new injury or suspension problems, but on-loan defender Marcus Williams will play his last match before returning to parent club Reading. Defenders Johnny Ertl and Lecsinel Jean-Francois both appeared for the reserves in midweek. The former is continuing his comeback after an eight-month injury lay-off due to cruciate ligament damage. Midfield pair Kevin McDonald and Ryan Flynn are also pushing for recalls after appearing for the second string. Rochdale manager Steve Eyre has no new injury worries. Pim Balkestein has returned to Spotland after undergoing the first stage of rehabilitation from groin surgery with parent club Brentford. The centre-back has resumed light training, but the Bramhall Lane clash comes too soon for him. Shin splints vicim Joe Widdowson made his comeback for Dale reserves in midweek but is not expected to be involved. Midfielders Joe Thompson (thigh) and Simon Hackney (abdominal) remain long-term absentees, alongside Scottish defender Marc Twaddle (back). Dale were out of action last weekend following their elimination from the first round of the FA Cup and have a record of one win in their last eight npower League One matches.

Match Report

Evans at the double for Blades In-form striker Ched Evans scored twice as Sheffield United eased to a 3-0 win at home to Rochdale to make it five wins in a row for Danny Wilson's men. Evans opened the scoring in the 39th minute after Dale defender Stephen Jordan failed to head clear from Lecsinel Jean-Francois' ball into the area. An earlier shot from Evans was parried by David Lucas while United goalkeeper Steve Simonsen made a brave block to deny Nicky Adams. Rochdale had to make a change in goal at the end of the first half when Lucas received a blow to the head and was taken off on a spinal board after receiving lengthy treatment. After Evans missed the target from just a few yards out while under pressure from Stephen Darby, Richard Cresswell made it 2-0 when he steered the ball in at the near post following a good cross from Jean-Francois after 57 minutes. Evans scored his eighth goal in five games with a superb 25-yard free-kick to seal the points for the Blades in the 64th minute before Simonsen kept out efforts from Harry Bunn and Gary Jones.
