'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Morgan Stays Upbeat Despite Cup Disappointment

Sheffield United captain Chris Morgan remains upbeat despite seeing his side dumped out of the FA Cup by Burnley on Saturday.

The Blades skipper, who was partnered in defence by Jonathan Fortune for the first time, believes the Blades matched their Premier League opposition for much of the game, but Steinsson's early goal in the second-half gave the side an uphill struggle.

'There wasn't much in it in the first half but at the start of the second we shot ourselves in the foot, then it was always going to be an uphill battle.

'There was not much between the teams apart from the fact that we gave two soft goals away. I thought 2-0 flattered them and they will probably agree.'

'We are out of the cup now and have to fully concentrate on a busy few weeks in the league, starting with Reading on Tuesday.'


Morgan made his 250th appearance for United at the weekend, and will be looking to build on that after signing a contract extension on Thursday along with midfielder Stephen Quinn.

Morgan is quite right - tomorrow's game is vital - a win should put us back in the play-off places and poised to take off. Reading are serious opposition - forget their league position - they will want this at least as much as us. Team selection is vital. I would like to see Ward and Yeates and Evans and Creswell back - a sign of our intent to play real football and score goals. Really sorry Williamson is likely to be out as he makes a hell of a difference. By the way, worried about rumours of issues with Ward - get his contract sorted pronto, play him and get him back to when he was on fire before the injury - he was a brilliant signing - don't blow it as he is very much part of our future.
