Cressy returns

15 April 2013

Chris Morgan has confirmed Richard Cresswell has returned from his loan spell at York City, but unfortunately he injured his Achilles at the weekend.

Cresswell, who helped the Minstermen beat Northampton on Saturday, will undergo a scan on Wednesday to determine the extent of the injury, but Morgan says the striker, who is also coaching with the Blades this season still has a vital role to play whether that is on the field or off it.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's game with Brentford, Morgan said: "Cressy is someone I always planned to recall, similar to Jordan (Chapell), because we need as many bodies as possible.

"I spoke to Nigel (Worthington) last Thursday and it was agreed Cressy would return after the game at Northampton.

"Unfortunately he picked up a whack on his Achilles and was forced to be substituted. He has limped around the training ground today (Monday), but still managed to contribute to the session.

"We aren't sure on the full extent of the damage, but the picture should be clearly after his diagnosis on Wednesday.

"When I recalled him I was keen to have his input and experience on the coaching side but obviously before the injury I also considered him as a good option to have within the squad.

"Cressy is someone I have known since we were about 14, he is a top bloke, but most of all an honest guy who won't just say yes for the sake of it.

"He has big role to play between now and the end of the season and Cressy commands the respects of the players, just like Unsy does."
