Harry Chapman blow for Blades

Sheffield United will be without on-loan Middlesbrough winger Harry Chapman for Saturday's home game against Swindon.

Chapman, who has returned to his parent club, requires surgery and will be ruled out until well into the new year after rupturing ankle ligaments in training.

Boss Chris Wilder has no suspension problems but is expected to recall several players after making five changes last Sunday.

Goalkeeper Simon Moore, defenders Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Daniel Lafftery, winger Mark Duffy and striker Billy Sharp are all hoping for recalls.

Swindon boss Luke Williams will make a late decision on three players ahead of the match.

Midfielder Yaser Kasim has returned to training after almost two months out with an ankle injury but may need more time to regain full fitness.

Defenders James Brophy and Bradley Barry have a better chance of being available. Brophy came off at half-time during Saturday's win over Bradford while Barry has been struggling with a hamstring strain.

Nathan Thompson remains unavailable, also with a hamstring problem, while defender Jamie Sendles-White is out for the season with a cruciate ligament injury.
