Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has received a boost ahead of the first Steel City derby of the season, with the news that winger Mark Duffy is available for selection following a hip problem as reported on Sky Sports.
Wilder will be looking for an immediate response from his squad, following defeat to Nottingham Forest last time out that knocked the Blades off the top of the table.
So, how goos is the news that Duffy is returning, for the Blades?
Fit players are always a boost, but having Duffy back is important.
The Blades work as a unit, not individuals, so losing a component of that unit will always cause issues.
When Duffy comes back it just adds to the well-oiled machine they have in place there.
It is massive.
In big matches like this you need your most experienced heads available and Duffy is one of the Blades’ most experienced.
His end product could be crucial in breaking the deadlock in what could be a tight affair.
Huge boost for the Blades.
Despite his age, he is one of the big influencers at Bramall Lane under Chris Wilder and to have him back in the dressing room will be massive for Sheffield United.
It’s a timely return with the Steel City derby tonight so that can only be used as a positive ahead of the clash.
