NICK Montgomery and David McAllister could enter Sheffield United “play-off equation,” manager Danny Wilson confirmed last night.

The midfielders, who were recently allowed to leave Bramall Lane on loan, are available for selection after their arrangements with Millwall and Shrewsbury Town respectively expired.

Wilson, speaking ahead of this evening’s League One semi-final first leg at Stevenage, said: “Monty and Macca are both there for us.

“Monty, as everyone knows, came back early because of injury.

He’s not had much football of late and so that’s something we’ve got to be mindful of. But he’s trained the past couple of days and looks very up for the game if selected.”

Montgomery, a veteran of two play-off campaigns, made only two appearances for the Londoners before damaging a calf muscle.

McAllister impressed as Town marched towards promotion from League Two before seeing his stay at Greenhous Meadow cut short by suspension.

Wilson’s attack has been the focus of United’s selection problems, with Richard Cresswell featuring at Exeter City six days ago despite nursing a broken nose, fractured hand and jarred shoulder.

“Not everyone is 100 per cent fit but we’ve got players who are ready to play,” said Wilson.
