Let us entertain you

18 September 2012

Danny Wilson is tipping Tuesday's South Yorkshire derby against Doncaster Rovers to be 'entertaining clash'.

The Blades boss has given Doncaster's start to life back in League One a positive reference and knows they will come to the Steel City with clear intent to register back-to-back away successes:

"Doncaster have started very similar to ourselves in many respects, they have had some results that should have gone their way but haven't because they have conceded sloppy goals at crucial times.

"It promises to be a decent game, they are still overcoming the relegation from last season but are attempting to do that quick. I am sure they will come to Bramall Lane in buoyant mood after a deserved win at Colchester.

"I don't think, for one moment, they will come here to defend, they have been offensive in every game this season and played in a very expansive fashion - I don't see that changing.

"In the framework of their team they have several potential matchwinners, as we do, so it could be an entertaining clash between two very good sides."

The Gaffer is well aware that his side will have to be on their metal defensively, given the threat Rovers pose from dead ball situations:

"Deano (Dean Saunders) has got a decent squad to choose from, he has rotated things round already, but they are a big side and are an obvious threat from set-pieces.

"Defensively they are also very competent and the defenders are always keen to get forward and score goals, so we need to be astute."
