Bob Harris: Hoping to start

Team news for Tuesday's League One clash between Sheffield United and Rotherham United at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough is expected to make changes for the home game against Rotherham.

Clough has no new injury or suspension worries, while defender Bob Harris (thigh) attempted to prove his fitness ahead of next weekend's FA Cup semi-final against Hull by stepping off the bench in the weekend draw against Leyton Orient.

Fellow defender Matt Hill (hamstring) returned to the bench as an unused substitute on Saturday and striker Jose Baxter is expected to shake off a hip injury.

Midfielder Stefan Scougall (thigh) played the final 32 minutes against Orient and is in contention as Clough reshuffles his resources ahead of next Sunday's trip to Wembley.

Rotherham will check on Lee Frecklington ahead of Tuesday's South Yorkshire derby with Sheffield United.

The influential midfielder hobbled out of Saturday's thrilling 4-3 win at Gillingham with cramp in his back with 10 minutes to play and he will be assessed.

Boss Steve Evans has a conundrum in attack after Tom Hitchcock came off the bench to strike a match-winning hat-trick at Priestfield and the on-loan QPR striker could earn a start.

Mark Bradley (knee) is the only absentee for the Millers, who are unbeaten in 16 games and travel the short distance looking for a first win at Bramall Lane since 1980.
