Conor Coady is remaining positive despite United's current predicament.
Loanee Coady, England's skipper in the U20s World Cup last summer, came close to opening his Blades goalscoring account in Sunday's defeat by Coventry.
Speaking as the players prepare for this weekend's home encounter with Port Vale, Coady commented: "Obviously the players take responsibility when we cross that white line, but the supporters need to continue to back us and I am sure they will, they were terrific on Sunday.
"We need to be positive from the start and look to put Port Vale on the back foot, similar to what Coventry did against us.
"If we can get in the lead then I am sure our supporters will urge us on to three vital points, that is the sole focus within the dressing room.
"The new manager will be coming in soon and everyone starts with the same clean slate and the opportunity to impress."
More from Coady, plus the thoughts of Lyle Taylor, Stephen McGinn and Chris Morgan will be in Saturday's matchday programme, UTB, which will be available around Bramall Lane ahead of the fixture with Port Vale.
