Wilson wary of Cumbrians

30 March 2013

Danny Wilson is adamant the Blades will have to repeat Friday's dominant display at Tranmere if they are to make it six points from six over the Easter Period on Monday.

The Gaffer was quick to praise both his players and United's excellent travelling support for their efforts on the Wirral following the 1-0 success, but Wilson is demanding more of the same against Carlisle United.

Looking ahead to Monday's clash, the Blades boss said: "I am really looking forward to getting back to Bramall Lane, because the passion the supporters and players demonstrated at the end of the game on Friday shows exactly what it means to everyone connected with the club.

"If we can replicate that level of backing at home it is going to mean the opposition will have to produce a special performance to beat us in that atmosphere.

"We won't underestimate Carlisle or take anything for granted, because we have had too many home matches this season when we haven't got the right result for whatever reason.

"We will go out there and give it our all like we always do and hopefully we can build on the win at Tranmere.

"What I will say is we will have to be at our very best because Greg (Abbott) continues to do a tremendous job at Brunton Park.

"He has continually worked against the odds to preserve Carlisle's League One status and they are always capable of upsetting the apple cart.

"Their result at home to Shrewsbury on Friday, where they hit back twice, shows they have a real character and belief."
