Sheffield skipper Simon Stead admits his impressive performances mean nothing if Tigers are not winning meetings.

Having seen his 2013 ruined by a broken leg, the local hero has made a spectacular start to 2014, proving a regular source of points from the No 1 spot.

Yet the Owlerton outfit have experienced an inconsistent start to the campaign, suffering defeats against Scunthorpe and Rye House last week.

Stead, who grew up as a fan of the club, admits he can only be so pleased with his form if his side are recording victories.

And he has his sights set firmly on helping Sheffield get back to winning ways as they launch their charge for Premier League title glory.

Said Stead: “I’m exceeding my expectations of where I’d be at this stage coming back from that injury last year.

“It’s all well and good me going out and scoring 14 or 15 points, but if the team doesn’t win it’s kind of irrelevant.

“I’ll just be trying hard to work with the guys to get everyone up to speed to make sure we do a lot more winning.”
