Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is hopeful both defender Jack O’Connell and midfielder John Fleck will be available to face Newcastle United on Sunday. The pair missed out on Wednesday’s 0-0 draw at Aston Villa through injury.
Chris Wilder said “It’s a difficult one from my point of view. We are not a Man City who can pick a team an hour before kick-off, We have to work on stuff, we have to organise stuff to put plans in place to compete, so that coming out was disappointing. Fortunately, they are contact injuries and not soft tissue injuries. The commitment of both players – Flecky goes in for a challenge at Hull City in the last minute and I am looking at him thinking you can’t do that, but he trains and plays in that way and that’s taken him though his period at Sheffield United. Jack O’Connell collided in the last minute of a session on Monday. I believe Flecky will be back for Sunday, Jack we are just waiting on.”
