Dave's delight

2 October 2012

Dave Kitson has revealed his delight at scoring his first goal in United's red and white and refused to rule out extending his stay in South Yorkshire.

The 32-year-old marksman, currently on a deal until the end of 2012, headed home in front of the Kop against Notts County on Saturday and is content with his contribution to date as he strives to regain full match fitness.

He said: "I thought it was going to be one of those games where we did everything but score; we could have easily been two or three up at half-time.

"In the context of the game I was delighted to score at that time because people were starting to get a bit edgy. It was a great cross by Ryan Flynn and I just managed to get my head around it.

"I thought I was a handful at the weekend, putting myself about and, as people would have seen, getting physical doesn't bother me. Saturday was a real battle at times, everyone was pumped up, both on and off the field, but that is what you expect in such a big game."

The former Reading striker is happy to be at the Lane, adding: "Sheffield United is a great club, I have played against them many times and I have always admired the Blades because they are such a genuine club with great supporters and staff behind the scenes.

"If I am being honest I picked United over more local clubs to where I live, some of which are in the Championship. I am happy with how things have started, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. The deal in place at the moment works for everybody so let's assess things in January."
