Enda Stevens is a player that has had a remarkable journey in football. Having experienced the harsh realities of professional sport early in his career, he had worked his way all the way back up the English football pyramid. With a few weeks to go in this season, he is on the verge of a return to the Premier League.
Stevens and Sheffield United travelled to take on Birmingham City in a vital game in the Championship promotion race tonight, with the Dubliner giving his side the perfect start. He popped up on the edge of the opposition penalty area before unleashing a cracking strike beyond the Birmingham goalkeeper.

Stevens doesn't score all that many, meaning he would have enjoyed that one all the more. Ireland supporters will be keeping a close eye on Sheffield United over the remainder of the season, with compatriots Stevens, John Egan, David McGoldrick and Scott Hogan all part of the squad.
