Danny Wilson says his side will have to be at their best to get all three points against Hartlepool United on Tuesday night.
The Blades head to Victoria Park to tackle the struggling Pools, who find themselves sitting in 23rd place in League One after nine matches, but Wilson says that position belittles the ability at Neale Cooper's disposal:
"Hartlepool haven't had a good start to the season, which is easy to see, they have conceded a lot of goals and hopefully we can take advantage if they are low on confidence.
"What I will promise everyone, though, is going up to Victoria Park is as tough a place as you will go to in League One, it has always been a hard place to get a result. Tuesday will be no different, regardless of Hartlepool's position at the bottom end of the table.
"They have brought in big Stevie Howard; he has had a terrific career, scoring goals throughout, so we must respect him. We don't expect an easy ride, Hartlepool have several players who, on their day, are very good, including Antony Sweeney, who was there in my time at Victoria Park. Jonathan Franks is also a threat so we go there knowing they have players who could hurt us if we aren't switched on."
With the Blades still unbeaten entering October, Wilson is refusing to panic, despite the Blades drawing six of their first nine matches:
"We are positive that if we can replicate the performance from the weekend the wins will come and our confidence will be sky high. Our work ethic goes without saying because if you don't earn the right to play you will not get many results.
"What we do have is ability within the squad so if we show that effort and determination there is a fair chance our quality will shine through."
