JP makes his return

United welcome striker JP Pittman back into the squad tonight as they play their final game of theirAmerican tour.

Pittman, American born, has been out of action with a hamstring problem but is now fully fit and ready to play as United take on a Jim Dedeus XI made up of the best players from the PDL in New England.

Pittman joins Alfie Potter in the squad after his own injury problem and with James Constable, Deane Smalley, Tom Craddock and Sean Rigg all available the U’s are likely to play three different strikers in each half.

There will be changes in defence where trialists Alex Evans and Ryan Tafazoli get their opportunities in the centre of defence. Courtney Harris gets a similar chance in midfield while goalkeeper Wayne Brown is set for a start to keep sharp.

United (from)

Brown, Clarke, Batt, Raynes, Wright, Tafazoli, Evans, Capaldi, Cox, Harris, Heslop, Forster-Caskey, Rigg, Constable, Pittman, Potter, Craddock, Smalley
