Focus is Gaffer's key word

5 April 2013

Danny Wilson remains firmly focused on his own side's fortunes ahead of Saturday's trip to Walsall.

The Blades boss, though, is respectful of the job Dean Smith has done at the Banks's Stadium and insists United will have to produce another perfect away display to leave the West Midlands with a 12th away win of the season.

Speaking of the Saddlers progress this term, Wilson remarked: "Walsall are a good side on an excellent run of form at the moment. They conceded a number of goals and lost a lot of games before Christmas but they are certainly up there on merit now.

"On their day they are one of the best footballing outfits in the division. Dean (Smith) has done and continues to do a fantastic job down there and, as we always say, one team will jump out of the pack.

"Dean will have installed a belief and determination into his young squad and they are currently playing without fear. Walsall had a terrific result against Coventry so they will be full of confidence and relish the challenge we present."

Concentrating on the Blades, Wilson added: "Away from home we have been very good in most cases this season and on Saturday we will have to be at our very best again. We remained focused.

"We know what we need to do to win promotion over the next seven games, but for the moment nobody is looking beyond Walsall."
