John Fleck is back in the Sheffield United side for this evening’s clash with Birmingham City at Bramall Lane.

Fleck missed Saturday’s defeat at Bristol City with a groin problem that he picked up against the Blues’ second-city rivals Aston Villa before the international break.

The Scot replaces John Lundstram in one of five changes to the United side, with George Baldock, Conor Washington, Leon Clarke and Marvin Johnson all starting.

Johnson starts at left wing-back in place of Enda Stevens, while Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick, Lundstram and Kieron Freeman also dropping out.

Blades: Henderson, Baldock, Basham, Egan O’Connell, Johnson, Norwood, Fleck, Duffy, Clarke, Washington. Subs: Stevens, Lundstram, Sharp, Woodburn, McGoldrick, Stearman, Moore.

Birmingham: Camp, Pedersen, Colin, Adams, Jutkiewicz, Dean, Maghoma, Gardner, Jota, Morrison, Lakin. Subs: Roberts, Mahoney, Bogle, Solomon-Otabor, Trueman, Lubula, Harding.
