Blades vs Hornets' team news

Last updated : 26 September 2008 By Jamie Furniss
The pair had some memorable times at Vicarage Road and because of their two training ground injuries they are unavailable for selection. Meanwhile their are currently three fit strikers in the side and Kevin Blackwell admits he has to play James Beattie more often than what he would have liked.

Blackwell commented: "We are missing Darius because I wanted him to stay fit to allow me to bring Beatts back slowly, giving him 45 minutes in the reserves here and 20 minutes with the first team there.

"James is having to play even though he hasn't yet regained his touch properly and I don't want him losing confidence because of that."

Sun Jihai is still suspended due to his dismissal against Coventry City. It's not looking too good on the Hornets' side of things. International goalkeeper Mart Poom will be sidelined due to a dislocated shoulder. Favoured centre-back Jay Demerit is also a doubt ahead of the trip to Bramall Lane.
