Rhian Brewster is committed to repaying Sheffield United supporters for their unwavering support during his extended injury absence. His return to action against West Ham last weekend marked the end of an 11 month spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring issue.

Brewster, the club’s record signing, observed from the sidelines as his teammates secured their place in the Premier League. Now back in the squad for the upcoming Fulham match, he aims to contribute to United’s aim of getting their first win of the season.

This recent injury was Brewster’s second significant hamstring setback in his three-year tenure at Bramall Lane, intensifying his determination to make up for lost time. Despite the current challenges the Blades face, Brewster maintained a positive outlook, bringing energy and enthusiasm that could provide a lift to Sheffield United both on and off the field as they strive to survive this campaign.

In his short sub appearance against the Hammers, the 23-year-old looked sharper than expected for someone that hasn’t played competitive football for almost a year.

The forward expressed his injury frustrations in the pre-match press conference for the trip to Fulham:

“It seems like every time I’m getting into the swing of things, something happens. You’ve just got to keep motivated, like I am, and keep wanting to push on and score some goals for Sheffield United, that I think I owe the fans.”
