The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BEN Davies says he’s shocked Sh­effield United al­lowed Marc McNulty to leave on loan and join him at Frat­ton Park.

The on-loan Blades striker, 23, scored a hat­trick in Portsmouth’s 6-0 de­mo­li­tion of York in mid­week.

Full-back Davies, 34, who scored his first Pom­pey goal in the same game, played along­side the Scot at Bra­mall Lane.

“I hon­estly don’t know why they would have let him come here,” he said.

“But that is to our ben­e­fit now and we’re de­lighted we’ve got him. He is one of the best fin­ish­ers I have seen – it’s prob­a­bly above this level of foot­ball.”
