Matchwinner Murphy

25 February 2013

Saturday's matchwinner Jamie Murphy was keen to heap praise on his team-mates following the victory at Bournemouth.

Murphy's second away goal in successive matches paved the way for a win over the Cherries, which propelled the Blades back to summit of League One.

The Scottish winger was delighted to get on the scoresheet again, but insisted it was a real team effort that was behind the success in Dorset.

Murphy said: "It is always nice to score and get an away win, but especially in such an important game, against a good team like Bournemouth.

"The goalie flicked my first attempt on to the post and when it came back to me I just kept my composure. I seem to score more goals with my left foot than right these days but they all count.

"To get the win could be crucial and we thoroughly deserved it. It was a hardworking performance and our concentration levels were first class. We had worked all week on being organised and staying resolute because we knew Bournemouth would have long spells of possession.

"Thankfully we got our goal early and that real gave us a foot hold in the game and from the first minute to the last we defended brilliantly."
