                                                    No new worries for Blades Sheffield United's automatic promotion push will not be hindered by any new injury or suspension problems when they face Bournemouth.

                                                    Manager Danny Wilson is expected to select his starting line-up from an unchanged squad as the Blades bid to increase their two-point advantage over third-placed city rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

                                                    Striker Richard Cresswell was given the all-clear to start in last week's win at Hartlepool with a broken nose and, although he was replaced by on-loan winger Michael O'Halloran for the last 15 minutes, he is expected to start alongside leading npower Championship goalscorer Ched Evans.

                                                    Harry Maguire was back in central defence at Hartlepool following a virus and is likely to resume his partnership with Neill Collins.

                                                    Strikers Will Hoskins and James Beattie provide Wilson with alternative options up front should he require them, while O'Halloran, on loan from Bolton, is pushing for his first start after two substitute appearances.

                                                    Bournemouth will continue to be without Matt Tubbs for the trip.

                                                    The striker, who has missed the Cherries' last five matches, underwent an operation on his hamstring during the week and, while the procedure was successful, the club's record signing has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

                                                    Caretaker manager Paul Groves will also be unable to call on Charlie Daniels, whose recovery from a broken bone in his foot is progressing well although the visit to Bramall Lane comes too soon for the defender to make his comeback.

                                                    Sharp Blades pick off Cherries Ched Evans and Richard Cresswell scored either side of half-time to give Sheffield United their fourth straight win as Bournemouth were beaten 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

                                                    The victory saw United reclaim second place from city rivals Sheffield Wednesday who briefly went above them in the table with a 2-0 win at Huddersfield earlier in the day.

                                                    Early pressure from the home side saw Evans have a shot blocked and Kevin McDonald fire over from a good position after playing a one-two with Cresswell.

                                                    United took the lead after 34 minutes when Matt Lowton's cross was knocked down by Cresswell and Evans volleyed in from around eight yards out for his 32nd goal of the season.

                                                    Evans turned provider five minutes after the break when his low cross from the byline found Cresswell who bundled the ball over the line from close-range.
