Building on success

12 February 2013

Michael Doyle is insisting the Blades build on Saturday's weekend success at Shrewsbury Town, when they travel to Bury on Tuesday night.

The win at Greenhous Meadow on Saturday, United's first league success of 2013, must be the spark for continued good results, according to the skipper.

Doyle admits he can understand why supporters have been getting frustrated in recent weeks, but is adamant the season starts now.

Speaking ahead of the clash at Gigg Lane, the captain commented: "The fans, understandably, have been getting annoyed and on edge but hopefully they will continue to back us and we can repay them with results on the pitch. I remember last year at Bury when our fans outnumbered the home ones.

"In any division, especially League One, nobody is likely to run away with things and win over 40 matches. Away from home we have been pretty consistent, but at home we just haven't been good enough of late.

"We need to replicate the performance at Shrewsbury for the remainder of the season, because if we do we will win more than we lose."

On the influence Dave Kitson has on the team, Doyle concluded: "Dave (Kitson) is a massive player for us and along with the other lads their experience is going to be vital for the run-in.
