Morgan predicts goals

25 April 2013

Ahead of the forthcoming play-off campaign, Chris Morgan is refusing to hit the panic button about United's goalscoring exploits.

The Blades failed to score in consecutive away defeats at Portsmouth and Crewe, but Morgan is backing his players to find their shooting boots when it really matters.

Speaking ahead of the weekend's clash with Preston North End, United's leader remarked:

"We have struggled for goals in our last two away matches, the stats speak for themselves, but we do have goals in this team and we have proved that at home of late.

"Against Swindon we could have been six up at half-time and that is no exaggeration, against Brentford we didn't succumb to the pressure and showed great character to come from behind and score twice. I am confident in the players we have at our disposal, what we need to do is get the lads relaxed in front of the net in training.

"Through repetition it will give them a lift and they are more likely to keep their composure when the pressure is on, but most of the lads have scored a lot of goals throughout their careers, so it is just a case of fine tuning things.

"I am not particularly worried about us not scoring in the last two matches because if we get an early goal on Saturday the whole outlook will change quickly and give everyone a buzz."
