Harry confident

8 February 2013

Harry Maguire is optimistic that the Blades can win their first npower League One clash of 2013 when they travel to Greenhous Meadow to tackle Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

Looking ahead to the Blades first ever trip to the Shrews's new home, the 19-year-old centre-half commented:

"Saturday is a game we are confident of winning and that is our only focus at the moment, before we think about Tuesday's clash at Bury.

"We know going to Shrewsbury will be a very tough game and, of course, we won't go there and underestimate their ability, but if we are somewhere near our best we should have enough quality to take all three points.

"Marvin Morgan is a real handful on his day, he is quick and physical so we must make sure we defend the first and second balls properly. Shrewsbury have proved this season that they can be a real tough nut to crack, especially at home, so it is important we start the game well."

Reflecting on Tuesday's postponement, Maguire added: "Of course all the lads were desperate to get back out there and try and build on the positives from the Coventry game.

"When you are on a bad run at home you just want the next game to come along, but after Tuesday got called off attentions immediately switched to the game at Shrewsbury because it is crucial we get back to winning ways as soon as possible."
