Match Preview

Blades welcome back Williamson Sheffield United begin life after Gary Speed with the visit of Swansea to Bramall Lane. John Carver has been placed in temporary charge following Speed's appointment as the new Wales manager and he will be able to welcome midfielder Lee Williamson back into the squad. Williamson has been out since April with a back injury but continued his comeback with 60 minutes in the reserves in midweek and could be in contention for a place on the bench. Striker Jamie Ward has been laid low with a virus over the last week but he has returned to training and should be involved. Goalkeeper Richard Wright, who lasted just 53 minutes of his debut before suffering a thigh injury against Barnsley last week, will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness. Strikers Daniel Bogdanovic and Richard Cresswell are suspended while defender Chris Morgan, who will act as part of Carver`s backroom team, will not play again this season with a knee problem.M Swansea have no injury or suspension concerns. Skipper Garry Monk made his successful comeback from a calf injury in last Friday`s 1-1 draw with Millwall, returning to the centre of defence alongside Ashley Williams. On-loan striker Jermaine Easter also made his Swans debut as a 56th-minute substitute having recovered from a thigh problem, and he will be hoping for more game time. How manager Brendan Rodgers opts to line up at Bramall Lane remains to be seen but changes are likely after what was a disappointing display against the Lions, with the likes of Darren Pratley, Stephen Dobbie, David Cotterill and Kemy Agustien possible starters. Another option is the inclusion of striker Shefki Kuqi in City`s matchday 18 following his return this week from a three-month loan spell at Championship rivals Derby. Swansea will be coming up against a familiar face in the form of midfielder Leon Britton, who spent eight popular years with the club before completing a summer switch to the Blades.

Match Report

Evans wins it for Blades Ched Evans grabbed the winner as Sheffield United began life after Gary Speed with a 1-0 home victory over high-flying Swansea in the npower Championship. John Carver has been placed in temporary charge following Speed's appointment as the new Wales manager and saw a spirited display from his charges at Bramall Lane. Evans struck just before the break to give the Blades three vital points in their bid to avoid relegation while Swansea's promotion hopes took a blow. Brendan Rodgers' side were looking to move into second place in the table but faced the unusual scenario of only being backed by around 50 away fans at Bramall Lane. A combination of treacherous snow and a flurry of accidents on the motorways meant that both official supporters' coaches were turned around by the police in the midlands, while a number of Swansea officials were also forced to miss the game. Those who did make the trip had little to see before Blades winger Stephen Quinn had the ball in the net in the 10th minute, only for the goal to rightly be ruled out for offside. Sunderland loanee Andy Reid was looking like an influential figure for the home side whenever he was able to get on the ball, and he went close with a deflected free-kick as United pushed on. Swansea were looking for Scott Sinclair to add some inspiration on their rare attacks and he looked dangerous when he cut in from wide on the left but could not find any power in his shot to trouble Steve Simonsen in the goal. A poor afternoon was then illuminated by a moment of quality as the home side took the lead a minute before the break. Reid provided it with a precise through pass which played Evans clean through on goal and the former Manchester City man clipped an early shot wide of Dorus De Vries and into the corner. Rodgers made a double change at the interval, with Craig Beattie and Mark Gower replaced by Jermaine Easter and Darren Pratley, and Easter was soon involved in an opening. The on-loan MK Dons forward worked a neat one-two with Nathan Dyer before flashing the ball across the face of goal and forcing Kyle Bartley into a fine clearance. Sinclair arrowed a long-range shot into the midriff of Simonsen as the Swans looked to claw their way back level and Pratley flicked a header wide. Swansea were dominating possession but the hosts almost made the game safe with three minutes to go. Substitute Jamie Ward sprinted clear down the right and found Evans inside the area. The striker managed to turn and get in a shot which De Vries smothered at his near post.
