Everton coach Stubbs backing Weir for Sheffield Utd success

Everton U21 coach Alan Stubbs is backing Sheffield United boss David Weir for success at Bramall Lane.

Weir worked with Stubbs at Everton last season.

"It's a great opportunity for him," Stubbs told "It's not going to be an easy job but it's a fantastic chance to go and we'll see what he makes of it now.

"Davey's target this season will be promotion and the fans there will demand that because it's a big club in League One and they want to be back in the Championship and then the Premier League.

"It will be tough but it's a challenge that he will really relish."
