Sharp keen to live the dream

SOUTHAMPTON striker Billy Sharp admits he is dreaming of pitting his wits against the best of the Premier League as his side stand just one more win away from a return to the top flight.

Nigel Adkins' men go to Middlesbrough tomorrow in the knowledge that victory will guarantee promotion from the Championship.

Sharp, who has scored seven goals for the Saints since his January move from Doncaster, says: "For myself and a lot of the players here who haven't played in the Premier League, it would be a dream.

"Hopefully, we will get there."
