Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp has said he is "relieved" to have scored his first goal since returning to the League One side in July.

Sharp returned for his third spell with the club in July, having signed from Championship side Leeds.

The 29-year-old started his career with the Blades, before re-joining from Scunthorpe and making 64 appearances for the club between 2007 and 2010.

"I'm relieved and delighted to get off the mark," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I'm a Sheffield United fan playing for the club who I support and it is a dream.

"The lads have given me stick because I've kissed the badge but that's what it means to me.

"My dad used to bring me to watch Sheffield United and I used to go mad and celebrate, and it's no different as a player."
