Henderson boost for Blades

19 Sep 2008 - 10:51:49

Sheffield United have been boosted by the news that striker Darius Henderson's knee injury is not as serious as was first feared.

The 26-year-old sat out the match with Coventry City in midweek, amid fears that he had suffered major knee ligament damage.

However, a relieved Blades boss Kevin Blackwell told the Yorkshire Post: "It turns out it is not a conventional, time-consuming knee ligament injury, but more damage to the fibres in the ligament.

"That is much better and a great boost for us all because I am hopeful that it might only take a couple of weeks to heal."

Meanwhile, United defender Sun Jihai faces an FA charge of improper conduct for failing to leave the field promptly after being sent off against the Sky Blues.

An FA statement confirmed: "The charge relates to the player's conduct after being shown a red card during Sheffield United's game against Coventry City on 16 September.

"Sun Jihai has until 6pm on Friday 19 September to admit or deny the charge. A Regulatory Commission will hear the case on Tuesday 23 September."
