Sheffield Utd boss Wilder: Rodwell and Robinson know we're no charity

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder says Jack Rodwell must work his way into their first team plans.

Wilder says new signing Jack Robinson and Rodwell will not simply be handed appearances for Sheffield United this weekend in the FA Cup against Millwall.

Wilder said, "Those two [Rodwell and Robinson] are ready to go but it isn't in my mind about 'we have to give them minutes'. It might be the other way around – who do we have to pull out, rather than who do we put in.

“They have both worked hard on the training ground Monday to Friday, so they're ready - but it's not a charity. It's not a case of 'we have to give him a game to keep his head up' or look at him.

“They'll play if we need to change it around."
