Opportunity excites McNulty

21 May 2014

Marc McNulty says he will relish the opportunity to test himself in Sky Bet League One next season.

The 21-year-old, who joined the Blades for an undisclosed fee from Livingston on Monday, acknowledges that their will be an expectation on him from the terraces after he scored 19 goals in 39 appearances for Livi last term, but it is something McNulty is keen to take it in his stride.

He remarked: "I expect there will be pressure on me to score goals from the supporters, but I am confident I can handle the challenge.

"This is a big step up for me, but to further your career you have to move on to the next level and prove yourself, now I have that chance.

"I am a confident finisher, but hopefully there will be numerous chances created in most matches. I put a lot of pressure on myself anyway so I am coming here determined to prove my ability."

McNulty hopes to see more young Scottish players make the move south in the future and he concluded by acknowledging the role Livingston have played in his development, which has culminated in allowing him to make this move to South Yorkshire.

"It was a big moment to leave Livingston after five years there, they have been fantastic to me.

"But the time was right to move to England and it was a no brainer once I knew of Sheffield United's interest, this is a fantastic Club with a great history and tradition.

"There are a lot of good players in Scotland and once someone takes a gamble on a player they usually do pretty well in England."
