It's fair to say there is one away day that Mark Duffy is looking forward to more than most next season.

When the fixtures come out for the 2019/20 campaign next month, the 33-year-old will be looking for when the Blades face his boyhood club, with Duffy particularly relishing the prospect of playing at Anfield.

He remarked: "I'll be honest when I started out playing I never thought I'd get to the Premier League.

"When you are playing in those lower leagues, you just want to enjoy your football and hope you get a break, thankfully I've had a few in my career.

"It seems a lifetime ago, a totally different world, but one I wouldn't change. It toughened me up, made me a man and made me appreciate the good times."

Duffy added: "It probably still hasn't sunk in. I was watching Liverpool the other night, usually it's just as a fan, but potentially we will be playing against those players next year, it's a strange feeling.

"I'm born and bred a red, so it'll be a strange feeling stepping out at Anfield, it'll be a massive game, but they all will be, there is a fantastic game every week.

"I get to Anfield when I can, I go with Jack (O'Connell), we got the other week and it's always a great atmosphere, a brilliant place to watch games, it'll be even better to play there."
