Harry wants points ahead of plaudits

29 October 2013

United's top scorer, Harry Maguire, insists points come before plaudits.

Maguire's third and fourth of the season, both headers in the 3-1 victory over Crewe at the weekend, sees the young centre-half top the Blades scoring charts.

Speaking after rounding off a week that has yielded seven points from three matches, the 20-year-old remarked: "It is a nice surprise to be top scorer but I am just pleased that as a team we are starting to move in the right direction.

"Having got good results against Port Vale and Peterborough, it was vital we continued to build on that momentum in the Gaffer's first game in charge."

Maguire added: "Me and Neill (Collins) always have a competition when it comes to goals, but it is all just banter it doesn't matter who scores when we are winning.

"The hat-trick was in my mind for the rest of the game, but in all honesty a clean sheet would have meant just as much. Overall, it is another three points and thankfully we are out of the bottom four.

"Chris (Morgan) deserves a lot of credit for the turnaround and I know the new Gaffer has been quick to acknowledge what he has done in recent weeks."
