Blades trio missing for Boro clash
But Kyel Reid, Ryan France and Andy Taylor could be in line for their debuts after signing from West Ham, Hull and Tranmere respectively while Glen Little will also be in the squad. Fellow summer signings Lee Williamson (knock) and Ched Evans (hamstring) may have to wait for their first appearances and manager Kevin Blackwell must decide whether to hand new goalkeeper Mark Bunn his debut or opt for Ian Bennett in the absence of Kenny, who is suspended after failing a drugs test. Striker Ward is sidelined due to a two-game ban hanging over from last season while midfielder Hendrie is suspended for four games following his dismissal in the play-off final defeat to Burnley. The match kicks off at 8pm.
