Promotion bid: McGoldrick desperate to help Sheffield United into top flight

Sheffield United forward David McGoldrick has said that he is desperate to help the Blades secure promotion to the Premier League for the 2019-2020 campaign.

McGoldrick arrived at Bramall Lane last summer after his contract with Ipswich Town had expired.

The 31-year-old has conceded that he became ‘a bit too comfortable at Ipswich’ due to the fact that the Tractor Boys were not pushing for promotion.

Now with Sheffield United, McGoldrick has scored an impressive 12 times in 37 appearances during the 2018-19 campaign.

And the six-time Republic of Ireland international has revealed how desperate he is to help Chris Wilder’s side secure promotion from the Championship this season.

East Anglian Daily Times quotes McGoldrick as saying:

“I believe I had lost my way a bit. I don’t think you realise it until you’re in that sort of situation. I maybe got a bit too comfortable at Ipswich, although I loved my time there.

“But we were mid-table every week and there was no big expectations to go out there and win every game, like there is at Sheffield United at the moment.

“I never wanted to stop playing football. I wanted to be back doing it every day and scoring goals. I want to get promoted with Sheffield United and keep going.”

Sheffield United have won each of their last three in the Championship, including a 1-0 victory over fellow automatic promotion challengers Leeds United last time out.
