Wilson remains positive

27 February 2013

Danny Wilson is refusing to get downbeat following Tuesday's goalless draw with Leyton Orient at Bramall Lane, despite admitting his 'frustration' at the result.

Russell Slade's O's defended resolutely to ensure the stalemate, but although Wilson conceded his team wasn't at it's best, the Gaffer refused to be critical after four wins and a draw from the last five matches.

Speaking afterwards, Wilson commented: "We always want to win our home matches so not doing so is always frustrating. We weren't as fluent as we have been but you must give Orient credit.

"They flooded the midfield and defence as you would expect and it was extremely difficult for us to breakthrough.

"We weren't as incisive as in previous matches but when a team comes to sit back and play on the counter attack if can often be tough.

"When we did get openings their goalkeeper has made crucial saves and we have hit the woodwork.

"We can talk about a lot of things, but we have returned 13 points from the last 15 available and if we keep returning points at that ratio I will be more than happy."

The Blades boss, who reserved a special praise for his goalkeeper, pointed out that results across the country in League One suggests there will be plenty more twists before the end of the season.

He concluded: "We have kept four clean sheets on the bounce and George (Long) deserves a lot of credit for making two or three important saves at crucial times.

"You only have to look at results elsewhere to see other teams at the top are also suffering the same frustration as we are."
