Harry Bunn, the Sheffield United centre-forward, has backed his team mates to rediscover their touch in front of goal, writes James Shield.

David Weir’s side visit Carlisle tomorrow having scored only once in three League One outings.

That disappointing run has prompted the United manager to scour the emergency loan market for attacking reinforcements.

But Bunn, signed on a short-term basis from Manchester City, said: “The lads that are already here are more than capable of scoring goals in this league. Once we get a couple of wins under our belt I think the goals will start to flow.

“Every striker goes through times like this. But as soon as one goal goes in, others will follow.

“Sometimes you stop doing things which usually come naturally. You concentrate on things you don’t actually have to.”

Bunn, who made his United debut during last weekend’s defeat at Rotherham, added: “Obviously that result was disappointing but we’ve a great game coming up to put things right.

“I’ve had a few loan spells before but not at teams as big as Sheffield United.

“I will learn here and I have a bit of experience in this league so hopefully I can do well if given a chance.”
