The Blades have not been in action since December 20 after their games against Hull and Middlesbrough were postponed, and Heckingbottom admitted this week that his team choice will be affected by “a couple of Covid-19 problems”.
Robin Olsen, Jack O’Connell and John Fleck are all expected to miss, while Rhian Brewster and Oli McBurnie will face late fitness tests. Sander Berge was able to make his first start since August after some breathing space in the fight against a hamstring injury.
Morgan Gibbs-White is not qualified to face his parent club.
The Wolves have ruled superbly in five of their last eight meetings against the Blades, doubling Sheffield United in the Premier League last season.
Early goals from Raul Jimenez and Saiss drove the Wolves to victory at Bramall Lane, while a second half from Willian Jose sentenced Sheffield United to relegation in the reverse match in April.
The Blades won at home when these teams met in July 2020, but they have not won at Molineux since goals from Michael Tonge and Wayne Allison inspired a 3-1 victory in April 2002.

Moving back to the Premier League will be the top priority for Sheffield United this season, and it would not be a shame if they were to drop out of the FA Cup to a top team.
Lage’s side has boasted a sparse defense this term and they will trust it once again if they are to go deep in this competition.
The Wolves should win in a tight deal this weekend.
Prediction: Wolves 2-0 Sheffield United
