Worth a reminder on those senior players out injured for United.

Michael Duberry (neck), Peter Leven (shoulder), Andy Whing (groin), Liam Davis (groin) and Harry Worley (ankle) all missing.

Worley closing in on a return, Whing and Leven expected in September, Davis in October and Duberry's return date is uncertain.

The big man goes for an operation next week, all the best to him there and for a speedy recovery.

United boss Chris Wilder's programme notes: "It says a lot about our reputation as a club that we can attract full first team squads from such clubs as Cardiff and West Ham."

He adds: "There is a strong sense of togetherness among the lads, which will be an enormous help for the season ahead."

So, what are the priorities for Chris Wilder's men today?

After four games against lower ranked opposition, their defence will come under pressure against a decent Cardiff City side.

The back four stood up well against West Ham, so hopefully Wright, Raynes & co can match that.

It'll be interesting to see Lee Cox against a top side for the first time since joining. The combative midfielder has impressed so far and the U's need him to fire when the season starts.

And more goals for the strikers. Not much to ask, is it?
