Cresswell Returns (injured)
Sheffield United have recalled striker Richard Cresswell from his loan spell with York City following an injury sustained to the former Stoke City man.
Cresswell, 35 will aid interim coach Chris Morgan in a coaching capacity after returning from his short loan spell at York following an Achilles injury and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season which he sustained in City’s 2-0 win at Northampton Town last Saturday. Cobblers, we kid you not!
Morgan said: "Cressy is someone I always planned to recall because we need as many bodies as possible. I spoke to Nigel last Thursday and it was agreed Cressy would return after the game at Northampton. Unfortunately he picked up a whack on his Achilles and was forced to be substituted.
"He has limped around the training ground (on Monday), but still managed to contribute to the session. We aren't sure on the full extent of the damage, but the picture should be clearly after his diagnosis on Wednesday. When I recalled him I was keen to have his input and experience on the coaching side, but obviously before the injury I also considered him as a good option to have within the squad."
