Football - Poleon hopes for Blades bow

Sheffield United are expected to include new loan signing Dominic Poleon in their squad for the home game with Colchester.

The 19-year-old Leeds striker, who will stay at Bramall Lane until the end of the season, is likely to be named among the substitutes.

Fellow forward Jonathan Forte, on loan from Southampton, scored his first goal since returning to the club in the midweek win at Bury and although he was withdrawn as a precaution after taking a knock, he is expected to be fit to resume up front alongside Dave Kitson.

Manager Danny Wilson, who has no new injury or suspension problems, could name an unchanged starting line-up after his side secured a second successive away win on Tuesday night.

Defender Matt Hill is fit again after recovering from a broken jaw and is pushing for a recall, while deadline-day signing Barry Robson is hoping to make his first start following three substitute appearances.

The win at Bury lifted the Blades to within three points of second-placed Doncaster.
