MATT Phillips and Billy Clarke have been praised for their star performances in Sheffield United’s win at Preston on Wednesday.

Phillips scored twice at Deepdale and Clarke, also on a month’s loan with the Blades, had a hand in all the goals.

Pool boss Ian Holloway said: “I was delighted with them. I’m glad they started and doing so well will work wonders for their confidence.

“In less than three weeks they will be back, and they will be fresher and ready to help us.”
