Experienced striker Billy Sharp can get the goals which will keep Sheffield United in a Sky Bet Championship Play-Off place until May.

The 31-year-old evergreen frontman has already netted four goals in English football’s second tier this term, helping his club to home victories over Brentford, Barnsley and Derby County.

Sharp has recorded the greatest percentage of shots on target (70%) in the Sky Bet Championship so far this term and if the player remains fully fit, his goals could help The Blades record a surprise top six finish come the end of the season.

The striker has only averaged two shots per game in his side’s first seven games of the season in the league but one thing which Sharp does not lack is a clinical finish and it is rare to see the player waste goalscoring opportunities.

Sharp enjoyed his most prolific campaign for a decade last season with the frontman netting 30 league goals as Sheffield United gained promotion from Sky Bet League One after winning the league championship. The player’s only other 30-goal plus haul came in 2006/2007 when he bagged 32 goals in all competitions at Scunthorpe United.

The Sheffield born goal machine is currently enjoying some of the best form of his career and that can only help his club in their search for an unlikely return to the English Premier League.
