Boss on Shakers stalemate

15 September 2012

Following the Blades 1-1 draw with Bury at Bramall Lane, Danny Wilson was pleased to see his team extend their unbeaten start in League One to six matches but 'dissapointed' with aspects of the performance against the Shakers.

Nick Blackman opened the scoring for United in the 10th minute, only for Peter Sweeney to restore parity moments later and despite chances at both ends, United were forced to settle for a share of the spoils for the fourth time this term.

Speaking after the stalement at the Lane, the Gaffer said: "When you draw at home people are going to be dissapointed but you always have to take the positives.

"We could have easily lost the game at the end, they have had two great chances, especially from the header when the lad should have scored.

"Their goalkeeper has had a fantastic game and made several saves, but overall we want to win at home and that is why we are left dissapointed.

"From my perspective our defensive work isn't good enough, we have conceded another soft goal and given away two real chances at the end which could have cost us.

"At the moment we are looking to score with every attack and that is leaving us open on the counter attack, we need to be brighter and make better decisions in key areas.

"We were missing Michael (Doyle) and Ryan (Flynn) through suspension but that isn't why we have drawn the game, we need to deal with certain situations more confidently and with better understanding.

"You always need to be proactive going forward and gamble on second balls, that is why the top strikers play at the highest level because they have great anticipation and that is something we must work on.

"We knew the areas we could get at Bury but we didn't probe those areas enough and it was typified at the end when we did get enough balls in and around the box."
