Youngster Set For Leicester Return?
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has revealed that he's considering giving youngster David Brooks a first team return when we face Leicester City this weekend.
United make the trip to the King Power Stadium to face off against Claude Puel's side in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Friday evening, and meeting with the media this week Wilder told the Official Site that our Welsh wizard could receive a call for the match having overcome a bout of glandular fever and got himself back on track with his fitness.
'We're looking good, although we've had a few of boys miss a couple of days through illness. They will train on Wednesday and a couple of boys also came through some minutes for the U23s on Monday.'
Wilder went on to say.
'David played 45 minutes, scored and got an assist at Hull and because of the numbers comes into our thinking for Leicester. Kieron got 25 minutes or so at the death, but it's too early for him, he's got to go through the process having been out since mid-October.'
The gaffer also confirmed that Ched Evans was now fully fit following his ankle issue, but he's got a battle ahead of him given the form of others in front of him at the top of the pitch.
'Ched is ready to play, I've made no secret of the fact that I've got Leon on 15, Billy and Clayton have scored goals and James Wilson could have easily had more than more. He's got players in front of him and he's got to fight his way through them to earn a place in the squad.'
