McCabe confident

29 January 2013

Kevin McCabe remains confident the Blades will seal a return to the Championship this season, despite a disappointing run of results in January.

Speaking prior to Saturday's FA Cup tie at Reading, the owner emphasised the Blades find themselves restricted in the transfer market as all clubs in League One and Two do, but insists strengthening the playing squad remains priority.

McCabe said: "I don't see as much as Danny (Wilson) as I should with living on the continent but we had a good heart-to-heart at the weekend and everyone at the club is pulling in the same direction.

"The financial situation is challenging because Sheffield United, for one, aren't used to this Salary Cost Management Protocol (SCMP). Every time you look to bring a player in you have to be mindful that you aren't going to break the limit.

"It is the biggest puzzle ever. I am naturally instinctive and last January I made the decision to let Danny bring in Will Hoskins."

Although the Blades are currently fifth in the table, eight points off second place, McCabe is convinced the Blades will produce the goods to seal promotion back to England's second tier.

He concluded: "I expect us, like the fans do, to be at the top, but I am sure we will get there in the next three months or so. Unfortunately we have been cursed with injuries to several key players and that has been frustrating for everyone connected with the club.

"We aren't kidding ourselves, though, we know we need to get promoted this season and that is why we are going to recruit before Thursday's deadline."
