Yeates in line for first Blades start

29 January 2010 10:08
Yeates, a recent permanent signing from Middlesbrough, stepped off the substitutes' bench for the last five minutes in the midweek win over Reading and is in contention to start.

But manager Kevin Blackwell is still short on central defenders following Matt Kilgallon's departure and injuries to Taylor (groin) and Seip (hamstring).

Kyle Walker gives Blackwell an option at centre-half as he can switch from the flank but Jonathan Fortune is expected to continue alongside skipper Chris Morgan at the heart of defence.

Lee Williamson (hamstring) is doubtful while strikers Henri Camara and Darius Henderson are hoping to win back their starting places.

The Blades have won their last three league and have lost only one of their last 11.
