Sheffield United can move to within two points of Fulham with a win at Bramall Lane.

A win for Fulham however will see The Cottagers open up a massive eight-point gap between them and The Blades.

Chris Coleman will be hoping loan singing Vincenzo Montella can continue his great form in-front of goal, which has seen the ex-Roma man hit four goals since his move in the transfer window.

Fulham could also be boosted by the possible return of duo Claus Jensen and Antti Niemi who are both recovering from injuries.

Papa Bouba Diop is not likely to have recovered from a thigh injury and is set to miss the game.

Neil Warnock is likely to hand a debut to new singing Ahmed Fahti but fellow new-boy Luton Shelton looks likely to miss out due to lack of match sharpness.

The Blades will also be without skipper Chris Morgan and influential winger Keith Gillespie who are both suspended for the match.

Warnock will wait until the last minute to see if defender Claude Davis can shake off a knock but will not the risk the player despite the lack of defenders available.

The decision on whether or not Stephen and Alan Quinn will play in the match will be left up to the brothers as they are mourning the death of their sister's boyfriend.

Skysports.com prediction: 1-2

Player to watch: Montella
