Boss satisfied with progress

19 September 2012

Danny Wilson insists his players can handle the pressure and expectation of playing at Bramall Lane.

Tuesday night's goalless draw against South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers came three days after a 1-1 stalemate with Bury, but Wilson is refusing to panic, as the Blades extended their unbeaten start in League One to seven matches:

"It is a continuous learning exercise, the top teams in the country have to break the opposition down every week and in this division we are no different.

"Not many teams in this league will come to Bramall Lane and give us our own way, sometimes you need a bit of guile, other times you need a bit of brawn and that is something we will continue to work on.

"It wasn't the purist game of football against Doncaster but we demonstrated the level of physicality you need to be successful in this division."

Looking at the bigger picture ahead of the long trip to Yeovil Town at the weekend, the Gaffer added: "We aren't disappointed in terms of the overall start; we need to keep working hard and believe in what we are doing, we head to Huish Park in good spirits.

"The clean sheet from Tuesday night is really pleasing especially given the threat they posed from set-pieces but we stuck to our guns brilliantly and now we have set standards that need to be achieved every week."
