Morgan 'marked man' claim after red card

CHRIS Morgan is becoming a marked man with referees, Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell has warned.

The former Barnsley centre-half became the most sent-off player in the club's history when he was dismissed midway through Saturday's 2-0 victory over Hull City and is now expected to miss the final two games of the season.

Morgan's absence will force Blackwell to break-up a rearguard he believes had evolved into the most formidable defensive unit in the Championship with veteran Ugo Ehiogu likely to start this weekend's crucial visit of Bristol City.
