A perfect week

17 February 2013

Danny Wilson was delighted to complete a perfect week of results, after the Blades beat Colchester United 3-0 at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

The Blades boss spoke pre-match about the importance of returning to winning ways at home after consecutive away victories at Shrewsbury and Bury respectively and goals from Barry Robson, Kevin McDonald and Dave Kitson saw United win for the first time in four matches at the Lane.

Wilson commented: "The scoreline would suggest this was a great result, but we have produced more emphatic performances this season without winning games so convincingly.

"Over the last week we have come through three very tough games where the lads have had to call on all their desire, determination and commitment to the cause.

"We must commend the players on their fitness to perform as they have done in the last three matches.

"We were determined to get a much needed home win and to score three goals for our own fans was terrific.

"The lads have been told to believe in themselves. We have retained that self belief when things were going against us and we always knew our luck would change.

"It wasn't as though there was a great deal wrong, it was a case of fine tuning and that is what we have done in the last seven days or so."

The win lifted United back up into second and with results over the weekend going in the Blades favour, Wilson is confident the Blades can handle pressure as the race for promotion hots up.

He added: "We have know for a while that we need to go the distance, I just feel some of our rivals are struggling to handle the pressure, but we have had it to contend with since the day I arrived.

"We handle and embrace the expectation level and we are seeing the results going our way at present."
