Formation Dilemma For Pardew

Last updated : 26 November 2007 By Paul Crisp
Luke Varney's late strike against Preston has given Pardew something to think about when it comes to team selection, but he is expected to stick to the 4-5-1 formation which has seen five wins in the five games it has been used, with no goals conceded.

Matt Holland is pushing for his first league start of the season after injury, which could see Jose Semedo left on the bench.

Possible side for Sheffield United: Weaver, Mills, Sodje, Fortune, Basey, Thomas, Zheng, Semedo, Reid(C), Sam, Iwelumo

Subs: Randolph, Holland, Bougherra, Varney, McLeod
