Sheffield United are attempting to catch Leeds United in the race for promotion, but they are currently three points behind Marcelo Bielsa's men.
Sheffield United have been dealt another blow in their race to catch Leeds United in the race for promotion.
Sharp and Basham have been two of Chris Wilder’s key man this season, and their absences are a bitter blow at a time when Sheffield United are desperately trying to catch Leeds.
Leeds seized the initiative in the race for promotion last weekend, as they capitalised on a slip up from Sheffield United.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men picked up a victory over Sheffield Wednesday, while the Blades could only manage to draw with Millwall.
Both Sharp and Basham picked up knocks in that match and they have been unable to shake them off over the course of the week.
The pair will be huge misses for Sheffield United, who surely need to collect three points on Friday.
Leeds, meanwhile, have no fresh injury problems, with Bielsa’s men next in action against Wigan Athletic.
