U's get set for Accrington

United are likely to name an unchanged squad to travel to Accrington on Saturday.

Manager Chris Wilder has no fresh injury worries although winger Alfie Potter remains a major doubt. Potter missed the 2-0 win over Northampton with an ankle problem and United will assess his fitness tomorrow before they travel for an overnight stop.

Jon Meades is the only long term injury and is looking at a three month recovery period after further surgery on an ankle problem he picked up in pre-season. Young defender Sam Long, who was sidelined at the same time, is close to a return to full training while both Callum O'Dowda and Josh Shama played in the development side's 0-0 draw with Portsmouth this week despite illness earlier in the week,

"We have a clean bill of health from last weekend" Chris Wilder told Yellow Player. "There were no new injuries and Jake Wright and Andy Whing playing again was a boost. They will be involved again on Saturday. We have trained well and we want to build on a good performance last weekend"
