A deserved point, says Morgs

23 October 2013

Chris Morgan praised the Blades discipline and character following Tuesday's deserved point at Peterborough United.

Speaking in the aftermath of the goalless draw at London Road, Morgan remarked: "It was an excellent point against a team that has been absolutely flying of late and has won seven of their last eight home matches.

"We had to be professional and disciplined in order to build on Saturday's win and we did setup a certain way to try and stifle Peterborough initially.

"We also knew with the pace we have in our team that we could cause problems on the counter attack and I thought at times we did.

"I am going to be biased, but I do believe we had the best chances in the game. I thought Lyle's shot was in all the way and I think the woodwork is still shaking now!

"Lyle has found some confidence from somewhere and I am delighted to see him starting to find his best form following quite a high profile summer move from Falkirk."

United's interim boss has been encouraged by what he has seen excluding the first-half display against Coventry City and Morgan says the turnaround proves the players have found the mental strength to complement their technical ability.

He concluded: "I must heap praise on the team again because to a man they stuck to the plan that we gave them and Jamie (Murphy) could have nicked a winner late on.

"The lads deserve a lot of credit; we have shown we have the ability to dig in and that there is a real spirit and character within this group of players, that pleases me moving forward.

"To get our first clean sheet of the season at free scoring Peterborough will give confidence another boost, that is for sure."
