Gaffer delighted with Stevenage win

17 November 2012

Danny Wilson labelled his players as 'excellent' following Saturday's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Stevenage at Bramall Lane.

Neill Collins opened the scoring and Chris Porter rounded it off, whilst Shaun Miller netted a second half brace, his first league goals for the Blades.

Speaking afterwards, Wilson couldn't hide his delight at seeing his team returning to winning ways in League One after last week's setback at MK Dons

The Gaffer commented: "Whenever you score four goals, particular in front of your home crowd, then you are pleased but we certainly deserved it.

"From start to finish we were excellent, we got caught with the sucker punch on the break, when quite honestly we could have been three or four goals to the good.

"But we started the second half strongly and never looked back. I told the lads at half time to keep playing how we were because we were excellent, particularly in the final third."

On the tactical switch that saw Miller partner Porter in attack, with Nick Blackman operating from the right flank, Wilson added:

"Shaun has been due a real chance in the league, we have been monitoring him closely in the last week or so and he was a constant threat, as was Nick (Blackman) from the right.

"Both Ports and Shaun are clever footballers who play to their strengths. They have a great understanding and read each other really well.

"When you have got so many good players in forward positions it is diffiuclt to leave anyone out, so we thought it was the ideal chance to blood all three at the same time.

"It has given me food for thought now, let's see who we have available for Tuesday night, but the lads have proved their worth to the squad."
