The ex-Huddersfield Town captain has been trying to recover from a twisted colon and he admits that he is desperate to make it back for Saturday's match.

"I’m feeling a lot better, I am back in training, and of course, I and desperate to play against Town, but that’s down to the manager (Jose Riga)," he said to the Examiner.

Clough wants repeat performance

Sheffield United may have only picked up a point against Leyton Orient, but Nigel Clough wants to see a repeat of that performance against Bradford City this weekend.

The Blades conceded in the last minute to let slip of the three points, but it was still a display with pleased Clough.

“The last two home performances [Gillingham and Orient] haven’t yielded six points but they are indicative of what we want to do."
