Blades trio to miss Vale clash
All three players are on international duty and Blades manager Kevin Blackwell will be forced into several changes from the side that drew 0-0 at Middlesbrough on Friday. Ian Bennett will replace on-loan Blackburn goalkeeper Mark Bunn, while Paddy Kenny is still suspended due to a failed drugs test. Lee Williamson is sidelined with a back problem sustained on the pre-season tour of Malta and both Jamie Ward and Lee Hendrie are suspended. Summer signings Kyel Reid and Glen Little could both make their competitive debuts and Billy Sharp is hoping to feature after remaining on the substitutes' bench at the Riverside.
