Sheffield United hope to call on Caolan Lavery for Coventry clash

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder will hope to have striker Caolan Lavery back in action as the Blades prepare to host Coventry and aim to extend their unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One.

Lavery missed their 2-0 victory over Millwall due to a knock suffered against Oldham but could be available on Wednesday as the Blades play the first of four games during a hectic Easter schedule.

Leon Clarke, Stefan Scougall and Marc McNulty are all pushing for starts while Wolves loanee Ethan Ebanks-Landell is doubtful after missing last week's game with an ankle injury.

A victory against the Sky Blues combined with a Fleetwood defeat at Oxford would see Wilder's side seal promotion to the Sky Bet Championship in midweek.

Midfielder Callum Reilly is likely to miss out for Coventry after tweaking a hamstring in training last week.

Striker Kwame Thomas is unavailable with a groin strain while Jordan Willis may be a doubt after being forced off with an apparent injury during their Checkatrade Trophy triumph over Oxford at Wembley.

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins could be forced to make changes, with a number of players suffering from tiredness after the turnaround from Sunday's win.

Forward Marcus Tudgay may be drafted into the starting line-up after coming on as a late substitute at Wembley.
