Matt Hill is hoping the Blades can go one better than last season after sealing a permement move to Bramall Lane.
After penning a two-year contract with the Blades following his release by Blackpool, Hill commented: "This is a great club that wants to go places and hopefully I can be a part of the success now.
"There is a fantastic squad here so I know I am going to have to be at my best to get a starting place but it is a challenge I will relish.
"It was so dissapointing to fall at the final hurdle last season, especially having kept three clean sheets throughout the play-off matches. We scored plenty of goals last season so if we can repeat that and be a bit tighter at the back then we will win more games than we lose.
"It remains a strong league and it will be as difficult as last season to get promoted but we are positive of going one better than last season."
