Wilder on Rams test

31 December 2017

Sponsored by

Chris Wilder expects a tough test against second-placed Derby County on New Years Day.

But Wilder insists the Blades will be positive at the iPro Stadium, against a team the Blades boss believes will be right up there come the end of the season.

He remarked: "They've picked up pace and are currently in great nick in terms of points and position.

"They are an established Championship club who've come close on a few occasions recently and they've often threatened to get into the Premier League.

"But this is possible one of the strongest and most powerful squads in the division, right up there with the likes of Villa, Middlesbrough and Wolves for me."

The Gaffer added: "If you were predicting who would be there or thereabouts, Derby would easily be in the top four, they've gone under the radar a bit, but recently they've picked up wins
consistently.

"Monday will be a tough test because they've got a strong squad and whether or not they make changes they won't be any weaker.

"These are fantastic games for us though and it was a great day when we beat them back at the Lane in August."

Chris Wilder said he was proud of his players following the New Year's Day draw at Derby County.

Leon Clarke's 15th of the season cancelled out Matěj Vydra's first-half penalty, to earn the Blades a share of the spoils at the iPro Stadium on Monday.

And the performance against the Rams earnt praise from the boss, who remarked: "It was a deserved draw and I'm really proud of the players.

"Our confidence and belief to a big dent on Saturday, because it was a missed opportunity and a game we should have won.

"So to come here and play on the front foot, like I've always said we will, meant we fully deserved our point.

"A few of my pals, including one who works at Derby, looked at me gone out when I said we'd come here and take the game to them."

Wilder added: "You look at the back of the programme and we are light at the moment, they made five changes and we couldn't make as many as I'd have liked played Saturday and Monday.

"I understand the group needs help if we're to kick on in the second-half of the season, but the lads gave everything for the football club and have done consistently.

"If they didn't the away end would have been half empty and it would have been at Villa. The supporters enjoy watching us play and back the club to the hilt.

"We're in a good place and I'm really delighted about what I've got."
