Boss delighted with Yeovil win

22 September 2012

Danny Wilson was delighted after seeing his team overcome Yeovil Town to net three vital points at Huish Park on Saturday.

Neill Collins second-half strike settled the contest in Somerset and speaking afterwards the Blades boss heaped praise on his players:

"It was a strong and determined performance, Yeovil had a few chances early on but we scrambled the ball clear and Mark (Howard) came to our resure on a couple of occasions.

"But as the game progressed we looked strong and in control of defensive situations in particular.

"In front of goal we had a couple of instances where we perhaps should have done better, but the three points and momentum are paramount at this stage of the season.

"We saw last year how difficult it is to win here and it was as we expected today, it was a keenly contested match against a team who normally have a proud home record.

"We needed to roll our sleeves up today as we did against Doncaster, but we were exceptional at times in the second-half on Tuesday and didn't get the credit we deserved.

"It was a different kettle of fish at Yeovil, the stadium is so tight and it is an intimidating place to come and play but we were resolute and got the all important goal to settle the contest.

"Of course there are areas to improve on as you would expect at this point in the season but we can look back on today as a job well done."

Wilson handed a first start to Dave Kitson against the Glovers, switched Paul Gallagher to the right and moved Richard Cresswell to the left, with Marcus Williams the man who missed out, on his team selection the Gaffer concluded:

"We came here with four strikers, with the emphasis on attacking.

"We came with a determined attitude and credit to all the lads because they worked their socks off and we certainly deserved the win."
