Sheffield FC vs Sheffield United

Last updated : 24 July 2008 By Jamie Furniss

Sun Jihai, David Carney and Nick Montgomery should play while reserve regulars Nicky Law and Nicky Travis will also feature. Kyle Naughton who looks to be part of Blackwell's plans some way or another should also make an appearance after a successful European Tour with the Blades last week.

Kevin Blackwell has admitted that Sun Jihai is a week behind fitness wise than all the rest of the team so Jihai may make a lengthy appearance tonight to stand him in good stead.

The last outing between the two teams was in October of last year and the Blades thumped Sheffield 5:1. James Beattie's hat-trick, Billy Sharp's chest into the net and Gary Cahill's header meant that the Blades rounded off a thrashing at the Coach and Horses Ground.
