Bristol City v Sheffield United preview
Last Updated: 14/09/18 11:55am
Bristol City defender Tomas Kalas is fit to face Sheffield United despite being taken off at half-time by the Czech Republic against Russia.
Boss Lee Johnson confirmed Kalas is fit but revealed another player, who he did not want to name, had suffered an injury in training. Nathan Baker is fit after an ankle knock while Mo Eisa and Frankie Fielding are getting closer to fitness. Korey Smith remains a long-term absentee.
Blades striker Leon Clarke looks likely to be available for the trip to Ashton Gate. Clarke missed the Aston Villa game before the international break with a tight hamstring.
Boss Chris Wilder revealed all his side's internationals are back in one piece and available. Dean Henderson, Enda Stevens, John Egan, Ben Woodburn, Oli Norwood and Conor Washington were all away with their countries.
Bristol City have lost their last three home league matches against Sheffield United since a 3-0 victory in November 2010.
None of the last 10 league meetings between Bristol City and Sheffield United have ended as a draw - the Robins have won three and the Blades have won seven of those games.
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has won just one of his seven league meetings with Sheffield United (D4 L2).
Sheffield United striker Leon Clarke has been involved in five goals in his last three league appearances against Bristol City (3 goals, 2 assists).
Bristol City striker Andreas Weimann has already scored five league goals in just six appearances this season - in only one previous season has he scored more in a single league season (7 in 2012-13 for Aston Villa).
No Championship team has scored more first half goals than Sheffield United this season (7).
Bristol City have quietly climbed into the top six after three straight victories and positivity is slowly starting to build at Ashton Gate.
On Saturday, though they face the only side in the division on a longer winning run. Chris Wilder is doing an exceptional job at Sheffield United again, there should be goals in this one but I can't split the two. Score draw.
David Prutton predicts: 2-2 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
