Tony happy with progress

26 September 2012

Tony McMahon believes last Saturday's hard-fought success at Huish Park was one of United's best performances of the season to date.

Neill Collins headed home what proved to be the winner early in the second-half in Somerset and McMahon says the three points were even sweater after successive home stalemates:

"Obviously any win is a good win, but to go to Yeovil and get three points was especially pleasing because there aren't many tougher places to go to in this division.

"I thought overall the team was excellent, we were very good in the first-half, but after going in front we really had to dig in to earn the victory.

"We have had a steady start but we have drawn more games than we would have liked ideally, but to still be unbeaten is a real positive. We want to win every game and when we draw we always look back and try and work on turning those draws into wins.

"We have got 14 points from eight matches so that gives us a solid base to build on."

The former Middlesbrough defender is optimistic there is still more to come from the Blades, as they look to cement the position in the upper echelon of League One:

"We are still gelling as a team, but we have still managed to be in control of most games and dominate the opposition at times.

"With all due respect we don't have anything to fear and our aim, as it was in the summer, is to be at the top of the table. We know we have got some tough games coming up, but after the start we have had we can enter them in confident mood."
