SHEFFIELD United striker Chris Porter should return to action within a fortnight, manager Danny Wilson has confirmed.

Porter has yet to feature at League One level this season after sustaining an injury during the Capital One Cup first round tie against Burton Albion.

Wilson said: “Chris can’t train for the next 10 days. He’s had an injection and needs to rest but after that he should be okay.”

Although Porter will again be missing when AFC Bournemouth visit Bramall Lane tomorrow, Darryl Westlake is available for selection following a muscle complaint.

Wilson, who signed the defender from Walsall earlier this summer, added: “Darryl has had a thigh problem. He’s trained but only for the past two days.”

Wilson used yesterday’s pre-match press conference to again express his displeasure at the transfer window system ahead of tonight’s deadline. In the past, United have considered loaning out some of their most promising youngsters in order to accelerate their development.

However, with the likes of Joe Ironside and Danny Philliskirk all featuring in the squad which drew 1-1 with Colchester six days ago, Wilson said: “We’re not looking to move anybody because the younger lads are involved.

“We might let a few go later depending on what happens.”
