Team News: Peterborough v Sheffield United

League 1 action continues to come thick and fast with Sheffield United in action again tonight, away from home.

Sheffield United have suffered back-to-back defeats to start the league season, which wasn't the plan! We face another tough game tonight at London Road against Peterborough United.

Peterborough will be missing Kenny McEvoy (foot) after the on-loan Tottenham Hotspur man had to be taken off shortly after his goal in the three-two win over Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday. Joe Newell (broken toe) is back but Jack Baldwin (knee) and Gabby Zakuani (hamstring) continue to miss out through injuries.

Nigel Clough has threatened to change things as he looks to get the league season up and running, only Mark Howard is 'nailed on' to start.

Jay McEveley came off the bench for his Blades debut at the weekend and may play from the start tonight with Andy Butler possibly coming back after being dropped for the Coventry City defeat due to 'poor form'. James Wallace (groin) is still struggling.

Ahead of the game Clough told the official website: 'We aren't a settled side yet.

'Nobody, apart from Mark Howard, is nailed on for a start; we need several players to rediscover their best form and as quickly as possible.'

Can the weekend defeat, and the one before that, be responded to do you think?
