Beattie Given Blades Ultimatum

James Beattie has been given a fortnight to get fit or face the axe at Sheffield United.

Blades boss Danny Wilson snapped up the free agent striker last month to boost his strike force.

But Beattie has yet to start training after a bout of food poisoning and then a calf injury left him sidelined.

But Wilson is running out of patience and wants Beattie to pull or a shirt or quit the club.

He said: ``It is a frustrating time from everybody’s point of view.

``He is not up to training at the moment because of his calf so it is like one step forward, two steps back for him.

``We can always extend James’ contract but he needs to be playing prior to January.''
