Simo: Yeates is key man for Blades

Sheffield United goalkeeper Steve Simonsen believes the Blades have one of the npower Championship's leading lights in winger Mark Yeates. The 25-year-old followed up his man-of-the-match display last weekend against Burnley with the match-winner at Hull in midweek and Simonsen is full of praise for the Irishman. Simonsen said: "It was a great bit of skill from Yeatesy for the winning goal. "We know he is capable of that sort of thing and the two goals he's got in the last couple of matches have given him that edge that makes him one of the most dangerous players in this division." The Blades keeper, who has kept four clean sheet this season, also gave fit-again skipper Chris Morgan a glowing appraisal. Simonsen added: "Morgs has that physical presence around him and generates confidence. He's a huge player for this club and a fantastic defender who always gives his heart and soul."
