Key Players:

Ched Evans: Evans joined from Manchester City for a substantial fee of £3 million but injury hampered his debut season at Sheffield United as he only managed 4 goals. Whilst at Manchester City Evans had a successful season on loan at Norwich in 2007 as he netted 10 times in 28 appearances. Evans has everything to prove this season and having scored on the opening weekend this year against Cardiff he will be looking to continue his goal scoring exploits against the R`s.

Nick Montgomery: A tough tackling centre midfielder with fantastic work-rate, Montgomery keeps the Sheffield United team ticking over. Montgomery has spent his entire career so far at Sheffield United making 339 appearances in all competitions.
