Blackman banned as Sheffield United host Cardiff

Sheffield United will be without goalkeeper Jamal Blackman for the Sky Bet Championship clash with Cardiff.

Blackman begins a three-match suspension following his sending-off for a tussle with Ryan Woods against Brentford on Good Friday.

Welsh duo Lee Evans and David Brooks will be pushing for starts after returning to the bench against the Bees following international duty.

Midfielder Paul Coutts remains sidelined as he recovers from a knee problem.

Aron Gunnarsson returned to the Cardiff team against Burton and suffered no ill-effects from his 23-minute run-out.

Gunnarsson has not played since November because of ankle surgery but after returning for Iceland in the international break was back in a Bluebirds shirt against Albion and will be looking to win back a starting place.

Jazz Richards has had a setback with his ankle injury in training which will rule him out for another two to three weeks.

Joe Ralls remains out with a hamstring problem.
