Sheffield Utd boss Wilder says Sharp ready to start

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder says Billy Sharp is ready to start.

But Wilder insisted it will not be for sentimental reasons if Sharp is back in the first XI for Sunday's clash with Crystal Palace.

"No. I've got to pick the right team. But that doesn't mean that I don't start with Billy Sharp," said Wilder.

"Because if I pick the right team in my eyes and Billy's in, then that's the right team that I've picked.

"It's not a popularity contest. I don't pick a side on sentimentality. Billy's pushing on the door because he's been outstanding for us and me, not because he used to live half a mile away."
