"To be honest, I've always been quite lucky with injuries. I get bored easily when I'm on the sidelines, there is nothing better than feeling fully fit and getting back into the thick of the action."
Having experienced the euphoria of promotion with the Blades before, he knows how important a consistent defence can prove to be at this stage in the campaign.
"We are confident of finishing the season strongly and that will be helped by keeping everyone fit.
"We have had plenty of changes all season in every position, but defensively now we have quite a settled unit and that is crucial. Last season we had the same back five for the majority of the campaign and that makes life so much easier."
