Sheffield United vs Aston Villa - Leon Clarke an injury doubt

Sheffield United striker Leon Clarke is an injury doubt for the home game against Aston Villa.

Clarke will be assessed after being forced out of last week’s win at Bolton due to a knock and replaced by David McGoldrick.

Key midfielder Paul Coutts is hoping to edge closer to his return to first team action with a run out in a friendly against Sheffield FC next week after breaking his leg last November.

Defenders George Baldock (knee) and Kean Bryan (match fitness) remain unavailable.

Villa’s latest signing Yannick Bolasie is expected to make his full debut after arriving on a season-long loan from Everton last weekend.

But midfield pair Jack Grealish (thigh) and John McGinn (knee) are both doubtful after sustaining injuries in last week’s home draw against Reading.

Striker Jonathan Kodjia is expected to recover from a knock that kept him out of the midweek Carabao Cup defeat at Burton.

Scott Hogan and fellow striker Keinan Davis (both groin) are not expected to return to contention until after the international break.
