Billy Paynter: Back in contention

Team news for Good Friday's League One clash between Sheffield United and Stevenage at Bramall Lane (kick-off 19:45).

Sheffield United striker Billy Paynter will return to contention for the home game against Stevenage.

Paynter sat out last week's FA Cup semi-final defeat to Hull having appeared for Doncaster in an earlier round, but is expected to return to the squad.

Manager Nigel Clough has no fresh injury or suspension concerns and has a full-strength squad to choose from with on-loan midfielder Ben Davies, striker Chris Porter and defender Matt Hill among those pushing for recalls.

The Blades have lost only two of their last 14 league games but are 11 points adrift of the play-offs.

Basement side Stevenage will be without Filipe Morais when they head to Sheffield United.

The Portuguese winger was sent off towards the end of last weekend's costly 3-2 defeat by Colchester and starts a three-match ban which will keep him out until the final day of the season.

Darius Charles is likely to take Morais' spot in the squad after the utility man recovered from an ankle injury.

Midfielders Dean Parrett (cruciate) and Roarie Deacon (ankle) remain on the sidelines although the latter could be back before the end of the season.
