Defender Craig Alcock is ready to make his return to London Road on Tuesday night and he hopes the fixture against former club Peterborough United can kick-start the Blades season.
Speaking after Saturday's disappointing display against Coventry City at Sixfields Stadium, Alcock acknowledged the Blades must improve after consecutive losses in Sky Bet League One.
On facing his previous employers, who have won two from two in the league, the 26-year-old commented: "The first two league games have gone now, we want our first points and our first win and hopefully that comes at Peterborough on Tuesday.
"We know we have to improve, but it is still very early days, there is a long way to go but we need to get moving in the right direction and starting to building some momentum.
"We aren't scoring when we are on top and are losing poor goals at the other end, so we know we have to do better and that will be a team effort."
