Progress delights Clough

23 December 2013

Following Saturday's point at Stevenage, Nigel Clough is looking for the Blades to 'kick on'.


Of the clash at the Lamex Stadium, Clough heaped praise on his players: "It wasn't a relegation battle; it was a very entertaining game and a composed performance from us.


"We were much more positive and on the front foot, compared to the games at Bristol City and Leyton Orient, but it should have brought us three points, that's our only disappointment.


"We can't praise the players enough at the moment and it is pleasing to see us moving in the right direction. It has taken time but I am delighted with our progress.


"We are looking strong at the back now, but more importantly a threat at the other end.


"That performance is how we want to play, both at home and away, because from the first minute we were dominant.


"Considering the conditions, it was a excellent game to watch, the officials were good and the pitch was excellent."


Looking ahead, the Gaffer added: "People look at a 0-0 and might wonder why we are so pleased, but on another day we could have won 3-0 or 4-0.


"We stood up to Stevenage and didn't get them any hope of getting into the game.


"We are on a great run, now we have two home games to really try and kick on."
