Team News

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper would have been delighted to welcome back the quintet of Max Lowe, Ryan Yates, Keinan Davis, Steve Cook and Jack Colback.

Especially the latter, who scored Forest’s opening goal in the first leg at Bramall Lane.

However, Lewis Grabban’s hamstring continues to be an issue as Cooper confirmed last week that the striker will be absent for the remainder of the year.

Elsewhere, Morgan Gibbs-White and George Baldock also returned to football for the Blades over the weekend.

Conor Hourihane made it onto the bench despite not training ahead of the game.

But the first leg came a little early for talisman Billy Sharp but he COULD be available for the Nottingham trip if he is fit.
