Sheffield United have had a couple of injury worries crop up as they prepare to face Saints on Saturday at Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United have two big injury concerns ahead of their match with Saints up in Yorkshire on Satuday
Both Ex Saints striker David McGoldrick and also Callum Robinson have withdrawn from international duty with fitness issues.
The duo had been away with the Republic of Ireland and both started the 1-1 Euro 2020 qualifier with Switzerland on Thursday.
McGoldrick scored his first senior goal for his country to rescue a point in Dublin. Yet neither will play any part in tomorrow’s friendly with Bulgaria.
“David came into camp with a shoulder injury but was determined to play against Switzerland and what a game he had,” national team manager Mick McCarthy told BBC Sport.
“He was brilliant from start to finish and capped off a great performance with a first senior international goal that was no more than he deserved."
“Callum felt his hamstring in the second half of the game so it is best now that he also goes back to Sheffield United for treatment.”
Both have played in all four of the Blades opening Premier League fixtures, Robinson has started each game and has scored once, the first in a 2-2 draw at Chelsea and McGoldrick started the first three and then came on for the last 30 mins at Chelsea, he is yet to score for the club this season.
Ex Saint Billy Sharp has only managed two substitute appearances so far, but did score the first goal for the Blades back in the Premier League when he equalised against Bournemouth in the final minute.

Yesterday was Alfie’s 15th birthday, so I was delighted that the random match generator has selected a game that is an important part of our life together following the U’s. I therefore make no apologies about the focus I will place on this game – I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it did me.

Apologies all, it’s been quite a hectic week at work so this one had to wait until today I’m afraid. I’m off to the New Lawn after this, so looking forward to seeing Noah and anyone else when I get there.
