Four Changes as Blues Switch System Against Blades
Saturday, 27th Apr 2019 16:48
Town boss Paul Lambert has made four changes as the Blues face promotion-chasing Sheffield United lining up with a two-man attack at Bramall Lane.
In defence, Myles Kenlock returns at left-back after missing the Swansea game with a hamstring injury and Callum Elder drops to the bench.
Cole Skuse and Teddy Bishop replace Trevoh Chalobah and Andre Dozzell in what looks set to be a diamond midfield with Alan Judge at the most attacking point behind strike pair Will Keane and Kayden Jackson, who replaces Gwion Edwards in the XI.
The Blades, whose promotion to the Premier League will be all but confirmed if they beat the Blues, make one change with Chris Basham replacing Martin Cranie.
Ex-Town striker David McGoldrick starts, while one-time Blues loanee Richard Stearman is on the bench.
Sheffield United: Henderson, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Baldock, Norwood (c), Fleck, Stevens, Duffy, McGoldrick, Hogan. Subs: Lundstram, Dowell, Sharp, Madine, Stearman, Moore, Cranie.
Town: Gerken, Bree, Chambers (c), Nsiala, Kenlock, Skuse, Bishop, Downes, Judge, Keane, Jackson. Subs: Chalobah, Dozzell, Elder, Emmanuel, Bialkowski, El Mizouni, Ndaba. Referee: Tim Robinson (West Sussex).
