Ollie Norwood is focused on the challenges ahead, after confirmation of his loan move becoming a permanent transfer was made public earlier this month.

And the Northern Ireland international has his sights firmly set on those above the Blades in the Sky Bet Championship.

He remarked: "When I first signed in August, I knew everything was agreed and the contract was signed, there was nothing else to be negotiated and I knew then I was a Sheffield United player.

"Things have gone well so far, but hopefully we can take it further as a group in the last 20 games of the season.

"We're not far off the top two, we've got ourselves in a really good position. We won three on the bounce over Christmas and took 10 points from 12 with the draw at Ipswich."

Looking ahead to the weekend's fixture against Steve McClaren's QPR, Norwood added: "We know Saturday is going to be another tough test though. QPR have picked up of late, they are in good form and have some really good players.

"It's another Championship test, they will be looking to make up ground on the top six, but we will concentrate on ourselves and look for another three points.

"For us, we're just looking to put pressure on the top two, we've got to apply the pressure and keep up with the pace, if we get in there, we've then got to handle the pressure."
