Danny Cadamarteri on creating goals

Striker Danny Cadamarteri came off the bench to make his debut for United at the weekend and he had an immediate impact when he fed Matt Robson through to score the opening goal of the game.

We talked to him about it shortly after full time.

"It's great to get some minutes on the pitch," he said. "It's good that I've been able to put my niggle behind me and get out there with the boys."

On his involvement with the goal, he added: "I got the ball on the turn and I spotted that Robbo [Matt Robson] was on a run. I lifted my head and heard the shout and when I looked out of the corner of my eye I saw him go.

"I played it onto him and to be fair he finished it nicely as well."

"We can't be complacent and expect to go on and win a game when we go in front," he explained. "We're disappointed that we didn't win because we don't want to give up any points. 

"We've worked hard though and there are plenty of positives for us to take from it."

"We've got a great opportunity to go on and pick up three points at home to Tranmere now," he continued. "Stevenage showed last season when they took Sheffield United to the wire that they aren't an easy team to beat so we can feel pleased with what we've done. Hopefully we'll kick things on in the next one.

"It has been frustrating for me because I felt that I'd started pre-season well. I was involved in the first two games and I was getting to know the lads, and I've had to keep my head down through the last two or three weeks.

"The lads had all earned their place in the side so all I could do was bide my time and wait for an opportunity. Once you get some involvement that's when you have to try and take your chance."

And a late challenge accompanied by some running repairs from physio Dolly were testament to the fact that the new United forward tried to do just that when he came off the bench.

"I wanted to take a leaf out of big Lee Miller's book and make sure I was being a nuisance," he said. "I tried to ruffle a few feathers and got a bit of a bash for my troubles, but you accept that. 

"The manager knows what I'm capable of and that's part of it. He's brought me in because he thinks I can have a bit of an impact and he knows I'm ready if he decides to pick me."
