Sheffield United have been dealt a blow with the news that Ryan Flynn will be out of action for ‘two or three weeks’.
The midfielder pulled up with a hamstring strain in the midweek defeat to Yeovil at Huish Park and was forced off in the first half.
Blades boss Nigel Clough confirmed in his weekly press conference that the Scot is likely to miss at least the next couple of games.
Jay McEveley remains a doubt after aggravating his shoulder injury last weekend.
There was some positive news, however, with Clough saying that Steve Davies and Terry Kennedy could be in line to make the team for Saturday’s game against Bradford City at Bramall Lane.
One more win looks likely to secure a play off place for United.
Clough said: “The good thing is, despite the Yeovil result, we seem in pretty good spirits.”
