New Sheffield United striker, Rhian Brewster, is confident of scoring goals for the Blades as the former Liverpool man looks to get off the mark for his new club.
Brewster was signed by Chris Wilder before the deadline for what was believed to be a club-record fee in excess of £20m. He has since started two games, although he has looked short of match sharpness and fitness.
That, as Wilder has said before, is through no fault of Brewster’s. In fact, as reported by the Sheffield Star, Brewster has been putting in the hard yards in training to get up to speed and believes things will come good for United.
“I wanted to try and get as fit as possible,and that has been why it’s been decided to stay behind and work really hard to put myself in the best possible place to be right for the games coming up,” Brewster said.
Brewster has yet to really have a chance in front of goal but for a one on one against City which was ruled offside.
But, the 20-year-old has seen similarities between his spell in Swansea – which yielded 12 goals – and believes the goals and chances will come for both him and the team.
“Towards the end of the season there, there was a change of shape to something similar to what is played here. I scored quite a few goals after that and there’s similarities between the two clubs,” he added.
“I know when the team is right at it, that chances will be created. Then it’s up to me to be in the right place at the right time and take advantage. I’m looking forward to building some partnerships here, I really wanted to come.”
Brewster’s time will come
It’s always hard for strikers when a team is struggling. Chances are at a premium and when you are new to a club, it’s even harder to fit in properly and know the system.
Brewster’s shown some nice touches at times but he is short of the fitness required. But, he’s clearly working hard at it to get right up to speed.
We are yet to see if he can finish barring that nothing chance against City. With a bit of luck, he can get off the mark this weekend at Chelsea and finally get our season kickstarted!
