James Wilson doubtful for Sheffield United

Sheffield United striker James Wilson is an injury doubt for his side’s home game against QPR.

Wilson, on loan from Manchester United, was withdrawn at half-time in Friday’s FA Cup defeat at Leicester and faces a late fitness test.

Fellow striker Leon Best and defender Richard Stearman will both return to contention after recovering from illness, as do midfielders Ryan Leonard, Ricky Holmes and Lee Evans, who were cup-tied for the Leicester game.

Midfielder John Fleck completes a two-game ban and goalkeeper Simon Moore serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

QPR defenders Jack Robinson and Jake Bidwell both face late fitness tests.

Robinson (shoulder) and Bidwell (toe) sustained injuries in Saturday’s home win against Bolton and are doubtful.

Defender Darnell Furlong (groin) returned to the bench at the weekend, but Idrissa Sylla (calf) and Grant Hall (knee) are still unavailable.

Forward Jamie Mackie (back) and David Wheeler (ankle) remain long-term absentees.
