Lee Evans will certainly be looking to prove a point at Molineux on Saturday teatime.

The Welsh international joined the Blades from the weekend's opponents last month and he admits the time had come to look for a fresh challenge away from Wolverhampton.

And Evans is delighted that Bramall Lane has become he new home for the foreseeable future.

Looking ahead, he remarked: "I've not got too much of an inside track this season, but everyone who has seen them has been very impressed, they've recruited some big names players from big clubs and they are favourites to win this division.

"But Nottingham Forest went there and won, so they're not untouchable. We've got to go there, be positive and look to take our chances."

The 23-year-old added: "I knew my time was coming to an end at Wolves, when they spend £15 million on a central midfielder you can't really complain too much.

"I've been on-loan at Bradford and Wigan, so I knew I would be leaving permanently and Sheffield United is the best club I could have hoped to join.

"United have built on walking the league last season and the momentum has taken us a long way.

"When you win a division so convincingly it only breeds confidence and there is nothing to fear in the league, the manager emphasises that all the time."
