New signings set to start for Sheffield United

Sheffield United's new signings Joe Riley, Jay O'Shea and James Hanson are hoping to make their debuts for the club against AFC Wimbledon.

Defender Riley, on loan from Manchester United, attacking midfielder O'Shea, on loan from Chesterfield, and striker Hanson, signed permanently from Bradford, could all play a part.

Boss Chris Wilder has further options with midfielder Samir Carruthers available again after straining knee ligaments on his Blades debut at Southend last month.

Striker Leon Clarke is still out due to an ankle injury as the Blades chase their first league win in four.

AFC Wimbledon duo Paul Robinson and Tom Soares are both in contention for the trip to Bramall Lane.

Defender Robinson, who was sent off against Sutton in the FA Cup replay, is expected to come straight back into the side and midfielder Soares, who joined the Dons from Bury on transfer deadline day, should make his debut.

Left-back Jon Meades remains sidelined due to an ankle problem and is expected to be unavailable for another couple of weeks.

Boss Neal Ardley has no fresh injury or suspension concerns.
