Fair result

17 December 2012

Harry Maguire felt Saturday's stalemate with Tranmere Rovers was a fair result.

The imposing defender thought the two sides cancelled each other out in the goalless draw, but was encouraged with how the Blades nullified Tranmere's attacking threat:

"We knew it was going to be a tough game and unfortunately we couldn't break the deadlock to nick all three points. Going forward our offensive play wasn't as fluent as we would have liked, but now we move to another tough game at Crawley.

"Tranmere have scored a lot of goals this season, but we defended strongly and rarely looked like we were going to concede.

"Defensively we feel we are getting stronger with each game and hopefully we will get a lot more clean sheets before the season ends."

Maguire reserved a special word for his friend and team-mate George Long:

"George is a great talent and a fantastic goalkeeper who will only get better with experience. He is a grounded lad who works hard and wants to learn.

"Goalkeeping Coach Darren Ward will give him great advice and get the best out of him, in time he will continue to develop and with the other people around him he certainly has everything in his favour."
