Pain doesn't stop Cresswell

The Yorkshireman was jeered by sections of the Kop when arrived at S2, but since then he has vowed to give it his all and has already got his name on the score-sheet. He clattered into the post to hand the Blades a deserved equaliser against Doncaster Rovers before the international break - this is incidentally the last time United picked up at least a point.

Cresswell said: 
"The ribs are still broken and pretty sore to be honest, it normally takes about six weeks to heal properly but I gave it a go in midweek and managed to get through the game.

"Hopefully the ribs will settle down a bit for the weekend and I will be available for selection.

"It is just in my character to get on with things, I don't want any medals for it, I just want to play football and I am willing to go out there and do my bit, even if it means having injections.

Cresswell, who has featured once since his hurtful injury last month, continued: "The pain of a broken rib is just the same as breaking your arm, although when you start twisting and turning you feel the most pain.

"It is slowly getting better and I hope I can manage to get through to the international break when I will be able to get plenty of rest.

"I haven't been training as much as normal, but it is the games that are most important at the minute and I am confident of being able to do my bit, come the weekend."
