MICKY Adams last night refused to confirm whether Darius Henderson will spearhead Sheffield United’s charge at Queens Park Rangers.

The striker is available for selection after serving a one match ban following his sending-off against Watford last month.

Henderson, who was making his first appearance in 11 months at Vicarage Road, is a key figure in United’s battle against relegation.

But United’s manager attempted to keep the Championship leaders guessing by appearing to suggest that Richard Cresswell could be asked to start alongside either Daniel Bogdanovic or Ched Evans.

“We need to get Darius match sharp and the only way he’s going to do that is by playing games,” said Adams. “He’s put in a lot of work on the training ground, especially because of the international break, but it’s still games that are the key and there aren’t many of them left.

“But Darius isn’t the only one who could come in here. There’s Cressy too. He’s another option.”

Cresswell returned to training on Thursday after recovering from a virus. “He seems over it now,” said Adams. “He’s looked okay in training.”
