Marcel set for start

Last updated : 22 January 2010 By Bladesmadeditor

2796870Defender Marcel Seip is in line to make his fourth consecutive outing in red and white colours tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. The Dutchman has proved to be a capable replacement for Kilgallon, who had been injured for the last couple of weeks. But Seip must now take the bull by the horns and cement his place in the Blades' starting XI.

Mark Yeates is cup-tied and ineligible. He'll have to wait till Tuesday night when the Blades turn their attentions back to league action - Reading come to town. Darius Henderson, meanwhile, is almost back to full fitness and could be pushing for a start.

As for Bolton, Mark Davies will be sidelined for this fixture after a controversial, rash challenge by William Gallas went unpunished in midweek - the Gunners went on to score. Davies suffered ankle ligament damage.

Ricardo Gardner and Gavin McCann are both injured and won't play, while Danny Shittu, a Blades target last year, is out on African Cup of Nations duty. Between the sticks, Ali Al Habsi, Wanderers' second choice goalkeeper, is likely to give Jussi Jaaskelainen a rest.
