Football - Paynter eyeing Blades start

Billy Paynter is hoping to make his full debut for Sheffield United against former club Bradford.

PA Sport Report

The 29-year-old striker appeared as a second-half substitute in last week's defeat at Notts County and manager Nigel Clough must decide whether to include him in his starting line-up.

Clough, who has no new injury or suspension problems, may keep faith with the same formation and so retain Chris Porter up front alongside Jose Baxter, while winger Jamie Murphy is pushing for a recall.

The Blades have lost their last two league games and sit one point above the relegation zone.
