Sheffield United boss Bryan Robson has indicated Leigh Bromby has played his way back into his plans.
Bromby has returned to the starting XI in the last two games after a spell out of the first team.
The former Sheffield Wednesday ace has impressed at centre-back since his return to the side and Robson has been happy with 27-year-old impact.
"I was pleased with Leigh Bromby," said Robson. "Since I put him in at centre-half he's had two cracking games and to be fair to him he said he would fill in at right-back, but he wants to play in the middle."
ProtectMeanwhile, Robson also confirmed striker Rob Hulse was left out of the squad for Saturday's FA Cup win at Bolton for his own sake after recently returing from a broken leg.
"Most of the changes were enforced on me, there was only Rob Hulse that I chose to leave out and that was because I wanted to protect him - he has played a few games of late," added Robson.
