Sheffield United will check on the fitness of Billy Sharp at the 11th hour before their trip to Bury on Tuesday night.

Sharp was left out of the win over former club Doncaster Rovers on Saturday due to a long-standing foot problem.

Speaking to the media at lunchtime on Monday, Blades boss Nigel Adkins admitted it would be a late call if the striker was to feature at Gigg Lane but added he was hopeful.

"Billy will hopefully be closer tomorrow," Adkins said.

"He will want to be involved and, of course, we want him to be involved too. But we'll have to see.

"At this stage, there's a chance he might be involved and a chance he might not.

"That is the situation as it stands right now."

Sharp is the Blades' leading scorer this term having netted 14 goals.

Youngsters Che Adams and Dominic Calvert-Lewin started in attack for United against Doncaster.
