Taking advantage of upcoming games

19 February 2014

Stefan Scougall says that he and his team-mates are desperate to take the cup form in to league fixtures.

The young Scot has only played five games in a Blades shirt - three in the FA Cup - but it has been drilled into him that climbing the Sky Bet League One table is the major priority.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday evening's trip to Gillingham, the 21-year-old said: "We've got to use Sunday's game as an inspiration and make sure we take what we are doing in the cup to the league.

"In the only away league game I've played so far (at Crewe) we were very disappointing so this is a chance to put that right. Gillingham are doing quite well in the table but we go there with confidence.

"I've found that in the games so far the tempo is quicker in League One - you get pressured for the whole game, whereas in the cup ties we have had more time. That's just the nature of League One and something we have to manage if we are to start climbing the table.

"The games are coming round thick and fast and will continue to for a couple of weeks so we need to use this period to start picking up points and easing away from the relegation zone."
