LUKE BECKETT aims to stay hot on the Galpharm goal trail against Blackpool tomorrow (3.00).
The 28-year-old has notched three goals in his two home appearances so far against Bournemouth and Luton.
And he's now got Colin Hendry's 19th-placed side in his sights as he kicks-off a second month on loan with Peter Jackson's injury-hit squad.
Beckett, in fact, has very happy memories of playing tomorrow's opposition, having scored on his last THREE appearances against the Seasiders!
That includes two against them at Bloomfield Road in Stockport colours earlier this season.
Personal targets are of only secondary importance, though, to the Sheffield United star.
"Whoever plays tomorrow knows it's a must-win game for us," said Beckett today.
"We haven't had the best of luck in recent matches, but we need to start putting some good results on the board as soon as we can.
"Looking over our shoulders, Blackpool are one of the teams below us in the table and, if we don't take three points, it just drops us into the equation a little bit more.
"If we play like we can - and we didn't deserve to lose last week against MK Dons - then we will be fine and, hopefully, I can stay among the goals.
"It's always great to score and I've managed it in both my games for the club at the Galpharm so far, so I'll be looking to keep that going.
"But the result is far more important than anything I do. If I score, then great, but it won't mean as much if we don't win the game."
On his loan extension, Beckett added: "It's a good deal all round.
"If I continue to do well, it helps Town, it keeps me in form should I need to go back to Bramall Lane and, obviously, it maintains the interest of other clubs should United want to sell me.
"I'm enjoying it here, though, so I'm glad to be staying.
"I've got to train with United once a week - so that I don't forget people's names - but otherwise I'm here and Peter Jackson is happy with that."
So, too, are the fans who have warmed to Beckett's finishing and his wholehearted attitude.
He will be playing alongside a different partner tomorrow in John McAliskey, who makes only his seventh League start of the season because of injuries to Andy Booth and Junior Mendes and a one-match ban for top scorer Pawel Abbott.
In midfield, Adnan Ahmed looks likely to continue alongside skipper Jon Worthington.
"Adnan switched to left-back at MK Dons and had a tremendous game," said the manager.
"His tackling, ball-play and workrate were superb and he'll aim to be strong again tomorrow in what is a big game for the club."
