Survival plan is working, says Evans

Have your say

CHED Evans last night predicted that Micky Adams’ no-holds -barred regime could tip the balance for Championship survival in Sheffield United’s favour.

Evans, who also credits a move to the country for helping him rediscover his form in front of goal, told The Star: “Things have definitely gone up a notch during the week. And I think that’s good because it’s how the game is played at this level.

“There’s a good tempo.

“It’s rubbing off on us. Okay, we need to get some wins under our belt now, but I think there are definitely some really encouraging signs.

“I’m not ignoring the position we’re in - nobody here is - but at the same time I’m confident that we can get out of it if we keep on working hard.”

United, who are 21st in the table, return to action when Leicester City visit Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening.

Evans, a £3 million signing from Manchester City, added: “I didn’t do myself justice to start with but I plan to make up for that now.”

Meanwhile, United season-ticke-holders can gain free admission to Sheffield FC’s Evo-Stik Division One South fixture with Grantham Town at the BT Local Business Stadium tomorrow (kick-off 3pm). Passes must be shown at the turnstile.

Former United striker Nathaniel Foster recently joined Chris Dolby’s side.
