Sheffield United are facing another injury worry ahead of their return to the Premier League, this time in the form of Jayden Bogle.
Bogle missed out on last night’s 1-0 loss at Huddersfield. The game was a bit of a nightmare on the whole. Despite dominating the first half, Daniel Jebbison missed a number of chances. That allowed Danny Ward to score a stunner in the second period as United very much looked a team already on the beach.
More worrying for United than the result, though, was the omission of Bogle. And according to The Sheffield Star, the defender could even be set to have some surgery.
Injury problems strike again
It’s been a theme of Sheffield United’s season really. In fact, Jayden Bogle has very much been one of the players most affected by injury.
This one sounds like something that’s not going to hinder him in terms of on the pitch training. However, it’s yet another concern for Heckingbottom and co. It might mean he missed some gym work if it can’t be sorted. That means the decision over surgery is a massive one.

Bogle’s injury coincided with fellow full-back Max Lowe also picking up another injury. The left wing-back went off with a calf injury and it remains to be seen if he’ll require any treatment.
Sheffield United News View: Luck needs to change for next season
When you think back to this season, despite the success, the injury list at one point was one of the most rotten in the club’s history.
There was a point where it really threatened to derail the season and when you look at it, you have to take your hat off to Hecky and the players.
However, heading into next season, we need our luck to change. Bogle’s injury might end up being minor, as might Lowe’s. But we can’t afford much of this next term.
If the Blades are to stay up, then keeping our players fit is massive. The new training pitch being in will help with that.
After that, we just need a bit of luck. Hopefully, Bogle is fine and Lowe’s is nothing major. Otherwise, it’s already a minor concern for pre-season.
