Match Preview

Charles comeback for Borough Darius Charles could return to the Stevenage squad for the visit of Sheffield United. The versatile Charles has missed the last four league matches with a knee injury. Don Cowan was fit enough for a place on the bench against Bury last weekend following knee ligament trouble and the striker will be hoping to be included in the squad once again. Boss Graham Westley made two changes at Gigg Lane. Michael Bostwick went straight back into the starting XI on his return from suspension while Byron Harrison was also recalled as Shane Long and Chris Beardsley dropped out of the team. Long and leading scorer Beardsley will be pushing for recalls this time round along with Lawrie Wilson and Phil Edwards. Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson will have a full selection of players to choose from. Wilson has no new injury or suspension worries as his side bid to extend their unbeaten run to six league matches and keep pace with the top two. Midfielder Lee Williamson has returned to full training following a badly gashed knee, but will not be included in Wilson's squad and is aiming to return for the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Bradford instead. Winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, on loan from Wolves, is not yet ready, but also closing in on a return to action for the Blades after missing the last five games due to a hamstring injury. Wilson must decide whether to retain teenage goalkeeper George Long or recall Steve Simonsen, while strikers Chris Porter and Ched Evans and midfielder Michael Doyle are all hoping to play a bigger role after starting last week on the substitutes' bench.

Match Report

Boro blunt Blades Stevenage extended their excellent run of form with a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United courtesy of Scott Laird's late strike. Just eight minutes remained when Lawrie Wilson found Laird and he made no mistake from 12 yards out. Stevenage had the better of the first half and finally went in front three minutes before the interval. Craig Reid's corner was not cleared by the Blades and Mark Roberts drilled a shot past goalkeeper Steve Simonsen from just inside the area. Richard Cresswell went close for the visitors before Stevenage replied with Jon Ashton seeing a well-struck shot superbly beaten away by Simonsen. Michael Bostwick then fired narrowly wide for the hosts in first-half stoppage-time. Stacy Long and Reid both missed good chances for Stevenage to extend their lead shortly after the restart and they made to pay with 21 minutes to go. Blades substitute Ched Evans was perfectly placed to pounce on a loose ball just inside the box and he made no mistake with a well-struck equaliser. But Laird had the final word.
