Fight goes on, says boss

23 September 2013

David Weir insists the fight goes on for the Blades, despite a fifth consecutive league defeat at the weekend.

The Blades boss thought his side deserved something from Saturday's clash with Simon Grayson's Preston North End, but in the aftermath of the loss he remained defiant, commenting:

"I can understand why people are continuing to question what is happening but all I can ask is for the supporters to stick with us.

"After another defeat, especially given everything we put into the performance, we are all left frustrated and angry, I can see the hurt in the eyes of the players so you can't ever question their commitment to the cause.

"It would be easy to curl up in a ball in the corner and hide, but me, the staff and the players will all respond positively and we will come out fighting again. We start again on Monday morning, that is the nature of the job, we will go again during the week and look to get a positive result at Wolves on Saturday."

The Gaffer also allied fears of injuries to two players that were substituted in the second-half and emphasised his request for patience from the terraces, adding:

"Febian (Brandy) had ran his race and we didn't want him to damage anything once he was clearly feeling fatigue.

"Michael (Doyle) had simply run himself into the ground too, as skipper, he typifies the desire the lads have to succeed.

"This football club is packed with great people, we want to bring success to Sheffield United, these are testing times but again I just want everyone to remain behind us."
