Morgs praises second-half response

15 February 2015

Speaking after the Blades terrific second-half performance in Saturday's impressive 3-1 victory over Bristol City at Ashton Gate, Chris Morgan praised the response of the players after 'words at half-time'.

United went in behind after Matt Smith's opener four minutes before the interval and Morgan said the United management team questioned the players belief in their own ability during the break, but were delighted with the response thereafter, with Matt Done netting a brace and Jamie Murphy rounding off a tremendous win against the Robins with a third late on.

Morgan remarked: "It is a fantastic against a Bristol City who are deservedly top of the league at the moment.

"They have been in great form at home all season and they hadn't concede a goal at Ashton Gate in 2015 until in midweek against Port Vale.

"They are a good side and Steve Cotterill has assembled an excellent squad of players, but to recover from a goal down and score three times in the second-half is testimony to the lads, because we had words at half-time."

The first-team coach continued: "We felt we had performed well enough in the opening 45 minutes to turnaround all square at worst, so to be behind was frustrating to say the least, but what a response we got from the players.

"We played in the second-half like we know we can play. For their goal in particular we questioned our positivity because we went from having a promising attack on the right to the ball been in our net 10 seconds later.

"So for us to get on the front foot and not look back is so pleasing and it just shows how good we can be, what we have to do now is believe in ourselves from the first minute to the last in games.

"If we do we should have a very exciting end to the season."
