The 35-year-old is in temporary charge of the Blades following the surprise sacking of Danny Wilson last month and leads them into a two-legged play-off semi-final with Yeovil.

It has been a turbulent year for United, who were beaten in last season's play-off final at Wembley, and Morgan believes it will be a job well done if his troops can return to the second tier.

"It would be a massive achievement for me, it is what we have worked for," Morgan said. "We worked hard over the past two seasons to achieve promotion. That has been the goal.

"The lads have reacted fantastically this season. You see team's drift away after losing a play-off final, we have come back and been at the top end of the division all season.

"We have lost vital players and had things cut back but we have kept going and that is credit to everybody connected with the club.

"We deserve a play-off place and are going to give it everything we have got to finish the job."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
