Sheffield United skipper Chris Morgan is expected to return to the starting line-up for the home clash with Burnley.
The central defender has missed the last three games due to a hamstring problem, but came through 45 minutes for the reserves unscathed in midweek and is likely to partner Nyron Nosworthy at the back, with Kyle Bartley still nursing a broken cheekbone.
But the Blades will still be without striker Jamie Ward, who sits out the last game of his three-match ban following his recent dismissal at Leeds.
Blades boss Gary Speed hopes to have fellow front man Ched Evans back in contention following a groin strain, though, and has no other new injury or suspension problems.
Defender Rob Kozluk is still out with a jarred knee and long-term absentees Lee Williamson, Darius Henderson and Ryan France are still out.
