Sheffield United midfielder Oliver Norwood is hopeful of getting his chance in the Premier League next season after winning a third successive promotion to the top flight.
Norwood was in the Brighton team that went up in 2017, before helping Fulham win the play-off final last season. However, the 28-year-old did not appear in the Premier League for either side.
“Last summer was disappointing. You start thinking ‘what have I done wrong? I went away, got my head down, got my head around it, worked hard and Sheffield United gave me my opportunity.
People say you are not good enough for the Premier League – how can you say that because I have never even been there?”
His team, Sheffield United was promoted and will win the Championship title if they beat Stoke and Norwich lose at Villa on the final day.
“I am really looking forward to it. For me, it is a childhood dream. To step out on the pitch in a Premier League game is any young boy’s dream who wants to play football.
Hopefully, that will come this season after two knock-backs. To do it this season with this group of players has been extra special.”
The Northern Ireland international Norwood does not expect his side to change their approach next season.
“Obviously we’ll have to work harder in the Premier League and we understand that but I think we will bring a freshness to the league. We will attack it with no fear.”
