Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder could name the same XI that started Tuesday’s win over Middlesbrough.

Keeper Jamal Blackman is available after a three-game ban but Simon Moore is likely to keep his place in goal.

Millwall manager Neil Harris has no new injury worries as the Lions look to extend their 16-match unbeaten run in the Championship.

Ben Thompson (ankle) is a doubt, while Byron Webster is working his way back from a long-term knee injury.
