Predicted Sheffield United line-up to face Brentford in the Championship
Sheffield United travel to Griffin Park to face Brentford in the Championship on Tuesday.
The Blades drew 2-2 against Rotherham last weekend and will now be desperate to end their three-game winless run this week.
Sheffield United have received a double injury boost ahead of Tuesday’s visit to Brentford, as Chris Wilder has confirmed that Kean Bryan and Jake Wright are now back to full fitness.
Probable Sheffield United XI
Manager: Chris Wilder
Dean Henderson (GK)
Produced arguably his best performance in a United shirt last weekend against Rotherham. Henderson was the reason why the Blades managed to come out with a point. A definite starter at Brentford.
Chris Basham (RCB)
Basham scored in the 2-2 draw with Rotherham and will be looking to get on the scoresheet on Tuesday as well.
John Egan (CB)
Egan has been United’s leader at the back. With him in the team, the defence looks more resolute and confident.
Jake O’Connell (LCB)
A ball-playing defender, O’Connell has the ability to pick a pass and create chances from the back. He will have to be at his best to keep the Brentford attackers at bay.
Enda Stevens (LWB)
Stevens is arguably the best full-back Wilder has in his squad. A fantastic crosser of the ball, Stevens will look to create problems down the left for Brentford.
Kieron Freeman (RWB)
Freeman is an attacking wing-back who will look to stretch the Brentford team on Tuesday.
John Fleck (CM)
Fleck is a good recycler of possession and works tirelessly in the engine room. Keeps the Blades ticking.
Oliver Norwood (CM)
A classy operator of the ball, Norwood’s presence on the pitch matters a lot for the Blades as he offers creativity as well as defensive diligence.
Mark Duffy (CAM)
Duffy is an intelligent customer who picks important spaces behind the defenders. He is a certain starter against Brentford.
Billy Sharp (LS)
Sharp is United’s main marksman and the skipper will look to lead the team from the front on Tuesday.

Conor Washington (RS)
Washington could get the nod ahead of McGoldrick and Clarke for Tuesday’s fixture. The former QPR man would offer a lot of pace and dynamism to United’s play in the final third.
