Blades Raid Rams For Defender Connolly

Sheffield United have swooped to bring in full-back Paul Connolly from Championship rivals Derby County.

With Chris Morgan missing two games through suspension, the Blades thin back-line was to be stretched even further.

However, following the arrival of Nicky Hunt, Connolly has struggled for game time, so manager Nigel Clough allowed him to join the Blades on an emergency loan deal.

It's expected he'll replace Morgan in the side tonight, with Nyron Nosworthy moving to central defence.

Welcome, Paul Connolly - a really good start!

Solid game from a bona fide defender playing in his normal position. Wasnt he Rams captain last season?

Not sure glou, was nice to see a defender playing the ball into midfield for a change impressive game to say he only turned up at 6! Might take my boots next week
