Further positives for boss

1 October 2012

Danny Wilson reflected on Saturday's 1-1 draw with Notts County at Bramall Lane, before turning his attentions to Tuesday's trip to former club Hartlepool United.

The Blades boss was keen to focus on the positives of the stalemate with the Magpies, despite missed chances coming back to haunt his side late on, when Lee Hughes equalised against the run of play.

Casting his mind back to the weekend, Wilson said: "I thought the performance was fantastic, we took the game by the scruff of the neck and really took the fight to Notts County.

"Their goal led something of a charmed life and their goalkeeper was certainly in inspired form on the day. We had the opportunities to put the game to bed but unfortunately we didn't take them and, sadly, two missed kicks have cost us at the other end.

"I couldn't fault the attitude and application, we were excellent and some of the football we played was outstanding."

Although he admits his concern at failing to put games to bed, the Gaffer remains upbeat that his team has the winning formula in their locker and expects his players to prove that at Victoria Park:

"We created numerous opportunities which was pleasing but we need to put the icing on the cake and kill teams off.

"When you play so well you expect to win the game, but what it won't do is knock our confidence because we know if we replicate those performances consistently we should achieve our main aim of promotion.

"We haven't lost our belief, we were disappointed but now we have to try and take that frustration out on Hartlepool on Tuesday night."
