Defensive worry for Clough

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough is short on left-backs for his side's home game against leaders Wolves.

Bob Harris (thigh) and Matt Hill (hamstring) were both forced out of Monday night's draw at Preston and will play no part as the Blades bid to extend their unbeaten run to 12 games in all competitions.

Kieron Freeman, on loan from Derby, switched flanks to cover at left-back at Deepdale with Ben Davies slotting in on the right as John Brayford missed out with a calf injury.

Brayford is rated 50/50 to face Wolves as the Blades chase a seventh straight home win.

Wolves manager Kenny Jackett could ring the changes for the game after a rare defeat in midweek.

The Sky Bet League One leaders have failed to win either of their last two matches after nine wins in a row and Jackett admitted they were not at the races in their 2-1 defeat to Crawley.

Leon Clarke could replace Michael Jacobs after an early introduction in midweek, while Dave Edwards and Matt Doherty are among Jackett's other options.

Wolves are now only one point ahead of second-placed Brentford having played a game more and need a win against the in-form Blades to consolidate their automatic promotion spot.
