Chris keen to impress

2 December 2014

Chris O'Grady believes his whole hearted nature and 'putting his body on the line' will endear himself to the Bramall Lane faithful.

The 28-year-old striker has been a long-term target of Nigel Clough's and the Gaffer's patience finally paid off last week when he secured O'Grady's services on-loan, initially until the end of January.

The former Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley striker is certainly no stranger to the area and he is hoping to hit the ground, should he make his Blades bow against the MK Dons at the Lane on Tuesday night.

He remarked: "I tend to play my best football under a manager that really wants me, the manager here has made no secret of his admiration of me and hopefully in the weeks ahead I can repay the faith he has shown in bringing me here.

"Things haven't quite worked out as expected at Brighton, it isn't easy to uproot a young family 200 miles down south, so hopefully with us being settled back in the local area off the pitch, I will hit top form quick on it, that's my aim and focus.

"I am eager to get out there and do what I do best, fans of previous clubs in this region will know what I am about, I will give everything I have got as I have done throughout my career, I will put my body on the line for the cause and hopefully score my share of goals too."
