Running at defenders

19 December 2013

Jamie Murphy is determined to make the most of his opportunity after forcing his way into Nigel Clough's starting XI for the victory over Swindon Town.

The Scotsman has earned some rave review from the Blades boss following his performances of late and his goal in the FA Cup at Cambridge was enough for him to earn a recall against the Robins.

Looking back on the win over Mark Cooper's side and his resurgence under Clough, Murphy remarked: "I am delighted to be back in the thick of the action and it is always nice to win at home.

"Our home form hasn't been good enough since I signed last January, but hopefully it will improve in the weeks ahead.

"It was a good win over Swindon and a deserved one too. That result against a team towards the top end of the league shows we can compete with anyone in this division.

"I have trained hard and now I am determined to repay the faith the Gaffer has shown in me. He wants me to run at defenders and put them on the back foot and that suits me, hopefully I can produce the goods."
