Blades duo unlikely to make final

Sheffield United strikers Jamie Ward and Darius Henderson are both unlikely to play in the Championship play-off final against Burnley next Monday.

Northern Ireland international Ward has a hamstring problem and Henderson is suffering from an Achilles injury.

Blades boss Kevin Blackwell told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I'll be honest, both of them are touch and go.

"They both have significantly worse injuries than we thought. If one of them plays I'll be delighted.

"The medical team are working 24/7 with the boys, but I just feel that the game will come a week too early," he added.
