O'Driscoll hails sharpshooter Billy

Published Add your comment

Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll labelled Billy Sharp "exceptional" after watching the on-loan striker fire his side to a third straight victory in their 1-0 win over Bristol City.

The Sheffield United frontman, on a season-long loan at the Keepmoat Stadium, has been in superb form lately, scoring in each of the previous four games.

"Brilliant," O'Driscoll said. "We have a striker in form. Goals change people's perceptions, but he has played exceptionally since day one."

He added: "He is just bright and breezy and works hard. He likes a physical confrontation, gets battered and bruised in training and gets on with it. When you have a happy player you get performances.

"He doesn't let anything upset him. He is a good asset. I think the crowd like him and the players appreciate him as well. If he gets chances he takes them."

There has been speculation that Sheffield United might recall the 23-year-old but O'Driscoll added: "He is on recall to sell, so they can't recall him unless they have a good offer for him and want to sell. Give me £2million and I'll sign him."
