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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
