Francis needs first team football
Grimsby Town have signed Sheffield United utility man Simon Francis on a month's loan.

The 20-year-old, who can operate in defence or midfield, has figured only once for the Blades this season in their Carling Cup win over Shrewsbury.

"Simon is a player that needs games and this will benefit him," United boss Neil Warnock told his club's website.

Francis joined United from Bradford City in March 2004 after playing over 50 league games for the Bantams.
