Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder set to ring changes against Fleetwood

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder could be tempted to reshuffle his side for Tuesday's League One clash with Fleetwood at Bramall Lane.

Wilder read the riot act after his side's 2-2 draw against Gillingham on Saturday and will hope to bring back defender Daniel Lafferty after two games out with a back injury.

Midfielder Joe Riley could be handed his first start for the Blades after being left on the bench on Saturday following his loan move from Manchester United.

Leon Clarke will face a late fitness test while Samir Carruthers (knee) is expected to remain on the sidelines.

Fleetwood manager Uwe Rosler has plenty of options available as he seeks to maintain their 10-match unbeaten league run.

New signing Wes Burns came on as a substitute in Saturday's late win at Coventry and the striker will soon be pushing for inclusion from the start.

Fellow new arrivals Markus Schwabl and Joe Maguire were also on the bench as Rosler left ouack Sowerby and Eggert Jonsson, who had started the previous match and could come back into the squad.

Defender Nathan Pond will not be making the trip as he is still sidelined with a knee injury with Jimmy Ryan (foot), Martyn Woolford (knee) and Michael Duckworth (groin) all doubtful.
