Micky's selection options as players return
SHEFFIELD United will be missing several key names when they look to record their first win of the Micky Adams era at Coventry tomorrow.
But the South Yorkshire club, who have drawn one and lost two of their past three games since the 49-year-old's appointment, welcome midfielder Stephen Quinn back from suspension while Richard Cresswell, Mark Yeates and Matthew Lowton could also return following injury. New signing Joe Mattock also travels.
"I've got some choices to make," said Adams.
"It's still not been the easiest of weeks because at the start we were short of numbers.
"But it's not all problems, problems, problems and I don't want to give that impression.
"As a manager you get on with your work.
"Cressy, Mark and Matty could be involved in this one providing they don't have reactions to the work that they've been doing with us. We'll have to wait and see on that."
Quinn received a three match ban after being sent-off at Norwich City last month. Events at Carrow Road, where both sets of players squared up to each other at the end of a controversial contest, also saw the visitors fined 15,000 after accepting an FA charge of mass confrontation although 7,000 is suspended until the end of next season.
United were also fined 5,000 for a similar offence during the recent Yorkshire derby with Hull.
"Quinny is back too so that's good news," Adams said. "He's available."
Coventry, who are 10 places higher than United in the npower Championship table, are without Ben Turner and James McPake although Sammy Clingan could return after a knee problem. Lee Carsley is expected to start after being rested against Crystal Palace last weekend.
