Onwards and upwards

30 September 2013

David Weir insists he is looking forward not back, following Saturday's defeat against Wolves.

The 2-0 reversal at Molineux saw United suffer on the road once more, but Weir is confident the Blades will soon turn the corner.

He commented: "The aim remains clear, we want to build a successful team here that is sustainable and I am convinced we aren't far away, but we need results too.

"I don't want to be a happy loser because that isn't me or anyone connected to the club, but we have to remain upbeat. Losing games is a bad habit, but we will return to work on Monday and look to shake it off against Crawley Town on Friday."

Speaking in the aftermath of the loss in the Black Country, Weir praised the performance and impact Marlon King has had on the Blades, adding:

"I keep saying that Marlon will be a big asset to Sheffield United and he will only get better with games.

"I thought he did a lot of good things on Saturday, as did all the lads and picking an unchanged team gave us some continuity, hopefully that is something we can continue."
