Boss happy with Blades squad

14 February 2013

Danny Wilson has declared himself happy with the current options at his disposal.

January saw Wilson add four players to his squad, Danny Higginbotham, Jamie Murphy, Jonathan Forte and Barry Robson boosting quality and experience in the Blades ranks.

Since the reopening of the loan window, Wilson has agreed a deal to bring Leeds youngster Dominic Poleon to Bramall Lane. The formalities on the 93-day loan will be completed on Saturday, in time for the forward to be eligible to face Colchester United.

Talking about the make-up of his squad, including the addition of Poleon, the Gaffer commented: "In terms of numbers, health and a good blend of youth and experience, this is certainly the strongest our squad has looked this season.

"Having Matty (Hill) available again is terrific because he is a great professional; couple that with the pace and enthusiasm of the likes of Jonathan (Forte) and Dominic (Poleon) and we are moving in the right direction.

"Dominic can play down either flank or down the middle. We will see his blistering pace and that in itself is an obvious threat. He will help us put the opposition on the back foot, Jonathan did the same at Bury, and that enables us to work further up the park. That, in turn, forces mistakes in areas where we can do real damage and score goals."

Meanwhile, on Thursday Wilson revealed to the media that he won't be handing contracts to the four recent trialists - Angelos Charisteas, Conor Clifford, Ted Cribley and Craig Lynch - all of whom have featured for the U21s in recent weeks.

"The players are not in the areas we are looking to strengthen or of a better ilk than what we already have," added the Blades boss.
