The Blades are striving to improve the home form, skipper Michael Doyle has confirmed.

"Yeovil played well but we were disappointing and there is no hiding from that, or the defeat in the Hartlepool game," said Doyle.

Saturday's defeat to Yeovil Town was a second consecutive home defeat and leaves the Blades with just one victory in the last four fixtures at S2.

But Doyle says that steps are being made to rectify the problem, adding "Playing at home has become a bit of an issue, as well as the recent defeats, we've drawn far too many - it is something we need put right.

"Saturday's goals were bad ones to concede, but the all round performance wasn't anywhere near the standards we have set ourselves over the past 18 months or so.

"There is frustration in the dressing room and on the terraces, and rightly so.

"But we'll work hard and put it right, we've got a lot of time before we play at home again and a couple of good results on the road will help rebuild our confidence and set us up for the Coventry game.

"The players are as disappointed as anyone with recent results and we are asking questions about what we need to do to get back to winning ways, the plan is to work hard over the next few weeks and hopefully it will bring us rewards."
