Kevin McDonald believes the form book goes out of the window in the play-offs.
United end their regular season at Bramall Lane on Saturday and whilst acknowledging a win over Preston North End would come as a welcome lift, McDonald insists the Blades will be full of confidence regardless when the play-off campaign kicks-off next week:
"Obviously our form hasn't been great, because if it had we would have won automatic promotion, but we can't dwell on the past because we still have an opportunity to go up. We now know we are in the play-offs and that is our only focus at the moment because it is the only thing we can affect.
"We haven't been clinical enough in front of goal, but if we do start converting a higher percentage of chances we will be very hard to stop over three games."
Looking ahead to Saturday's clash, the Scotsman added: "Preston are a good side, but although they have improved under a new manager, they have little to play for, only pride.
"For us we have to have the right attitude and sign off the regular season with a confidence-boosting win ahead of the play-offs.
"We need a win to get back on track but at home under Morgs we should have had six points from six, so we will look to continue that recent home form."
