Febian Brandy could return to action at Shrewsbury Town tomorrow following illness, Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough has confirmed.

The former Walsall winger missed last weekend’s victory over Crewe Alexandra after contracting a sickness bug on the eve of the match.

But Clough said: “Febian is fine. He’s eating well which is good and he’s trained all week.

“Barring anything unforeseen, we don’t have any fresh injury concerns. Everybody seems to be okay.”

United visit Greenhous Meadow 20th in the League One table - two places behind Graham Turner’s side - and hoping to extend their unbeaten run to four games.

With Aidy White completing his loan move from Leeds on Tuesday, Clough must decide whether to hand the former Republic of Ireland international his United debut or keep faith with Matt Hill at left-back.

“Aidy coming in gives us some options,” Clough, previously of Burton Albion and Derby County, said. “He’s someone that we’ve watched for a number of years now and so we’re pleased to be able to bring him in.

“Aidy has got great attitude and energy.

“That position has been a little bit of a problem this season. We’ve had quite a number of different players going in there and, ideally, we’d want that to settle down and become more consistent.

“But Matt did well in the last game. So that’s something we will have to assess.”

Town, meanwhile, are set to include Luke Summerfield in their squad after the midfielder was prescribed a course of injections to cure a troublesome groin problem. Nicky Wroe and Tom Bradshaw could also feature for Graham Turner’s side.
