Danny Wilson was understandably delighted with the Blades 3-1 win over Carlisle United at Brunton Park on Saturday, but felt his team made heavy weather of the victory in the second half.
Speaking after seeing goals from Ryan Flynn, Nick Blackman and Neil Collins pave the way for all three points in Cumbria, the Blades boss said:
"I thought we were strong and disciplined from the first minute and limited Carlisle to very little in the first half.
"We caused them constant problems down the channels, particularly down Nick Blackman's side and we deservedly got our reward with two excellent goals.
"We were in complete command at half time, but in the second half we allowed them too much time on the ball and gave away a lot of free-kicks around the box.
"They got a soft goal, a free header, which is annoying, but I always knew we had it in our locker to get that third goal.
"That third goal knocked the stuffing out of them and the game petered out thereafter, but we should have been more clinical and we rode our luck when they hit the woodwork twice after the break."
