                                                    Blades wait on Williamson Sheffield United midfielder Lee Williamson is rated "50/50" for his side's home clash with Leyton Orient.

                                                    Williamson is struggling with a chest muscle injury sustained in Tuesday's win at Rochdale, so Ryan Flynn, who replaced him at half-time at Spotland, could make the starting line-up.

                                                    Manager Danny Wilson is boosted by the return to contention of strikers Will Hoskins and James Beattie, who both returned to full training this week after overcoming a virus and a dead leg respectively.

                                                    Wilson has no other new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any further changes as his side chase a sixth straight win in pursuit of automatic promotion.

                                                    The Blades, in second, are two points ahead of Sheffield Wednesday and six adrift of leaders Charlton with four games remaining.

                                                    Leyton Orient will be without Jimmy Smith for the trip.

                                                    The midfielder this week had an operation on the fractured cheekbone he suffered against Notts County on Good Friday.

                                                    He will miss the clash with the promotion-chasing Blades, but Orient hope he could return before the end of the season wearing a protective mask.

                                                    Defender Terrell Forbes will be checked over after missing Monday's defeat by Exeter with a groin problem, while utility man Leon McSweeney (calf) and winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce (ankle) are also still struggling with knocks.

                                                    Jamie Jones starts in goal with Paul Rachubka on the bench after extending his loan from Leeds until the end of the season.

                                                    Fellow keeper Lee Butcher (knee) and defender Scott Cuthbert (hamstring) will not figure again this term.

                                                    Blades keep foot on the gas Sheffield United came from behind to beat Leyton Orient 3-1 to strengthen their grip on second place.

                                                    Kevin Lisbie put the visitors in front, but goals from Lee Williamson, Michael Doyle and Ched Evans gave the Blades their sixth straight win.

                                                    After some early pressure from the home side Orient took a 12th-minute lead when goalkeeper Jamie Jones' clearance found Lisbie, who nipped in ahead of Harry Maguie before firing past home goalkeeper Steve Simonsen.

                                                    Lisbie dragged a shot wide before Williamson equalised three minutes before the break after Evans had squared to him inside the penalty area. Jones got a hand to his shot, but could not keep the ball out.

                                                    Doyle found the net with a low drive from around 20 yards in the 54th minute after receiving a short pass from Williamson and the visitors were down to 10 men in the 61st minute when Ryan Dickson was sent-off following a wild challenge on Williamson.

                                                    Evans completed the scoring in the 83rd minute after surging into the area and firing past Jones for his 35th goal of the season.
