Nick Nack Paddy's Back, Simmo Still On Loan?
Sheffield United could be set to welcome back goalkeeper Paddy Kenny for Saturday`s Coca-Cola Championship encounter with Swansea City.
Kenny, who has missed the entire season with a nine month drug ban, has been training for some weeks now, but this Saturday is the first game that the goalkeeper is allowed to return to action.
United have given debuts to three goalkeepers this season with Mark Bunn, Carl Ikeme and Steve Simonsen all playing their part between the sticks, as well as current number two Ian Bennett.
Simonsen has been the standout performer of the trio who have been drafted in, and there is an option to extend the deal by a further week, should the Blades boss choose to.
The visitors go into the game two points clear of seventh placed Blackpool, knowing that victory would see them guaranteed a play-off place, but the Blades won`t roll over for their Welsh counterparts, and will put up a stern test with only pride left to play for in 2010.
What can`t be overlooked is the morale boost that Kenny`s return would give the crowd after such a disappointing campaign, and his presence is sure to make United`s twelfth man more apparent than ever this season.
