Sheffield United: Fans happy with Oliver McBurnie despite slow start in front of goal

Sheffield United supporters are happy with the impact Oliver McBurnie has had, despite the Scottish international not having had too much joy in front of goal so far.

Will Sheffield United avoid the drop?

Yes

The 23-year-old became the Blades record signing in the summer when he joined from Swansea City for a fee believed to be around £20 million.

Things, though, haven’t quite happened just yet with his sole strike coming against Leicester City back in August.

However, that doesn’t mean that he is playing badly. In fact, he could have had another goal if an offside John Egan hadn’t attempted to head the ball before he tucked it away against Southampton, with VAR ultimately ruling it.

Added to that, he would have also had an assist to his name in the same match after playing a wonderful through ball to David McGoldrick, but he ultimately missed a one-on-one against Angus Gunn.

Having only just arrived, the Blades fans understand that it is still early in McBurnie’s career at the club. They are generally happy with what they have seen so far and believe it is only a matter of time before he starts finding the back of the net.
