Problems Ahead As Crisis Returns
Sheffield United are facing more problems for the visit of Blackpool on Tuesday night, following Chris Morgan's booking yesterday.
It was the Blades skipper's tenth of the season, which rules him out for the next two Blades games.
Toni Kallio has already been ruled out for six weeks, whilst Kyle Bartley is suffering from illness and will be touch and go for the Champinship encounter.
Should Bartley fail to make the side, Jonathan Fortune could start alongside Marcel Seip. However, if Fortune's fitness is not yet up to scratch, it could lead to the Blades using an emergency full-back, in the shape of either Nick Montgomery or Matt Lowton, with Nyron Nosworthy moving to a central role.
'Problems are piling up because Tony looks like being out for six weeks and Kyle looks unlikely to be available against Blackpool on Tuesday night.
'Added to that, Chris Morgan was booked and will now be suspended for the next two matches. It means that we will definitely have to try and bring someone in on loan immediately.
When questioned about the potential of bringing in cover, Ellis seemed fairly optimistic and claimed the Blades were always looking.
'We have always got potential players on our radar and we enquired about one yesterday but didn't get him. It means that Sunday can be a busy day in football when you are chasing players.'
