Gary Madine netted twice in United's impressive success over Reading on Saturday and the striker admits he's loving life at Bramall Lane.

Madine, on-loan until the end of the season from Cardiff City, has impressed since arriving last month and got his rewards against the Royals with a first-half double in front of a rare spectator.

He remarked: "It's been a long time coming, I've not scored in nearly a year, but I've also not played much football.

"I'd like to thank the Gaffer for showing faith in me, the lads who have been brilliant with me since I walked in and the fans gave me a great reaction, I couldn't ask for anymore.

"My Mam came to the game too, which she doesn't normally do, so it was nice to get the two goals for her. She's going to have to come every week now though!"

Madine added: "It wasn't a difficult decision to come here. A while ago, the goalkeeper coach at Bolton mentioned Chris liked me and I said then 'I'd love to go there'.

"I know the way I play helps, I give 100% and work my socks off, I'm not going to beat three or four players, but the fans appreciate hard work and I managed to top it off with a couple of goals.

"Football wise this was the perfect move, the Gaffer has had success, it was a no brainer for me, we've got quality across the pitch and this is the place to be at the moment."
