Netting the plaudits

18 February 2013

Danny Wilson was keen to praise the goalscorers following Saturday's impressive 3-0 success over Colchester United.

Barry Robson netted his first United goal from the penalty spot, Kevin McDonald opened his seasonal account and Dave Kitson made it three goals in his last four starts, as the Blades confidently swept aside the U's challenge to return to winning ways at Bramall Lane.

Speaking after witnessing his team's third consecutive victory in the space of a week, the Gaffer commented:

"It was a great penalty from Barry (Robson), I don't think the goalkeeper even saw it go past him!

"Barry is vastly experienced and a quality player; he drifts around the pitch and gets on the ball in different pockets of play.

"The ball is like a magnet to him at times and he is a very intelligent footballer, when he gets to that fitness level required in League One he will be a real asset to us.

"It is about time Kevin produced something like that because he has so much ability in his locker!
"He does it in training with both feet everyday and it is about having the confidence to miss in a game.

"The one Dave had chalked off shouldn't have been, he was about a yard onside, but since he has returned to full fitness he has been instrumental to the turnaround.

"He got the easiest goal out of the three, but that is because his positional sense is second to none.

Meanwhile, Wilson is tipping his latest loan recruit to make a telling impact as the season progresses.

He concluded: "Dominic (Poleon) has come in with his eyes wide open, fully understanding what we are trying to achieve here.

"He is a young kid, naive at times, but he does offer us something different and most importantly his explosive pace will put defenders on the back foot."
