Sheffield United are waiting to discover if Stephen McGinn and Bob Harris will be fit to feature against Tranmere Rovers later this afternoon.

Defender Harris injured his groin during Good Friday’s victory over Stevenage while McGinn failed to make the team sheet after being taken ill ahead of kick-off.

“Stephen wasn’t well and, in fairness to the lad, he didn’t look very well either,” Nigel Clough, the United manager, said.

“We’ll see how he is for this one.”

“We’re not sure how serious Bob is yet,” Clough added.

“If it’s a couple of weeks then obviously that could be him done for the season.”

Rovers will assess Jason Koumas before naming their starting eleven after the former Wales international, now in his second spell with the North-West club, sustained a foot injury during the League One encounter with Notts County earlier this term.

Attacking midfielder Koumas has undergone a course of pain-killing injections designed to alleviate the problem but remains doubtful for the final game of the Bank Holiday fixture schedule.

Rovers, beaten 3-1 in the reverse fixture at Bramall Lane four months ago, could also recall captain James Wallace (groin) for the visit of Clough’s side.

Midfielder Andy Robinson, previously of Swansea City and Leeds, has been allowed to leave Prenton Park following an injured plagued campaign.
