Gaffer delighted with Deepdale success

20 October 2012

Danny Wilson felt the Blades more than deserved their 1-0 vicotry at Preston North End on Saturday.

Dave Kitson settled the contest just before the break with an expertly taken goal and despite having to rely on George Long to make a vital save in injury time, the Blades boss thought his team were good value for all three points at Deepdale.

As his team extended their unbeaten start in League One to 13 matches, Wilson remarked:

"It was a great win and a really sound performance. George made a fantastic save at the end but that is about all he had to do.

"To come to Deepdale and get the three points needed an excellent performance and we produced one.

"We are thankful for the decisive goal but in truth it could have easily been four or five nil from the chances we created on the counter attack.

"Nobody would have questioned it if we had won convincingly, so credit to the lads.

"Marcus (Williams) was tremendous, it was his best game for us. Preston's major threat came down the right and he nulified it really well.

"We have learnt a few lessons from last season, we have tweaked certain little things and thankfully things are going our way on the road."

Wilson revealed that match winner Dave Kitson nearly missed the game through illness and admitted he doesn't expect to sign a goalkeeper before Tuesday night's clash with Walsall at Bramall Lane:

"It was a great finish from Dave (Kitson) and we were luck to have him on the field because he was really sick before the game.

"He wanted give it a shot but at half time he was still ill and had to come off.

"I hope he will be ok in the next day or two, but we have options. Chris (Porter) was fantastic at Notts County in midweek and he repeated those efforts in the second half.

"It looks unlikely we will be able to add a goalkeeper to the squad before Tuesday night."
