Conor Sammon warned Sheffield United’s League One rivals ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet’ after firing Nigel Adkins’ side to its third victory of the new campaign.

The Ireland international, signed on loan from Derby, scored twice as the visitors beat Peterborough 3-1 at London Road.

Sammon, set to become a free agent next summer, insisted United have only shown glimpses of their potential but said: “It’s incredibly exciting - I’m playing in a team that’s creating chances whenever it goes forward and we’ve got players who can attack with pace, power and cross the ball.

“It’s still early stages. We’re still gelling as a group and getting to know how we all like to play. But the signs are good. I’m ambitious. I want to be at the highest possible level and that same ambition runs all the way through the staff. I’m really excited about the prospects this season. I just want to score as many goals as I possibly can.”

United were beaten by Gillingham on the season’s opening day but enter this weekend’s meeting with Blackpool in a rich vein of form after overcoming Chesterfield and Morecambe in the Capital One Cup. Sammon said: “Every fan wants their team to play attacking football, to be exciting and get them off their seats. That’s what we are looking to do. It’s great to be a part of something where you are encouraged to be so positive. But we’ve got to grind results out one match at a time and make sure we always prepare right.”

Adkins, who also saw Jose Baxter hit the target after Sammon had cancelled-out Souleymane Coulibaly’s equaliser, confirmed Stefan Scougall and Neill Collins are doubtful for Saturday. Both were withdrawn during the first-half.

The United manager said: “Stefan has got a bad gash on his ankle and Collo has got an issue with his calf. We’ll see how they are and take things from there.”
