Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock has some selection headaches in attack ahead of his side's FA Cup fifth round clash with Colchester.

Ashley Ward has only just returned to training from a knee injury and former Gillingham skipper Paul Shaw is cup-tied.

On-loan Wolves striker Dean Sturridge picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend, but tests have now revealed he also has a knee problem and is ruled out.

Carl Robinson, on loan from Premiership side Portsmouth, is also cup-tied.

Colchester United boss Phil Parkinson will head to Yorkshire without the services of Craig Fagan who is suspended.

The U's boss will also be without on-loan Middlesbrough forward Jamie Cade who is cup-tied after appearing for Chesterfield during his brief spell at Saltergate.

The Essex-based side will be looking to Rowan Vine to once again find the back of the net after his superb hat-trick against Coventry in the last round.
