Gaffer praises key duo

10 May 2015

Ahead of Monday's play-off semi-final second-leg, boss Nigel Clough has reserved praise for two of his players, who he believes will be instrumental in helping the Blades overturn a 2-1 deficit at the County.

Speaking prior to departing to Wiltshire, the Blades boss remarked: "Chris Basham was once again outstanding on Thursday, both in midfield and when asked to drop back in alongside Jay McEveley.

"He has been one of our most consistent performers throughout the campaign and his versatility makes him an even bigger asset, especially with injuries affecting us."

The Gaffer added: "Matty (Done) has been excellent for us since arriving from Rochdale and it is just a shame he has been hampered by his groin problems in recent weeks.

"But he showed in the first-leg, for the 15-20 minutes he was on the field, what a spark he is and how his presence forces defenders into mistakes.

"Hopefully on Monday he will be available to make a further contribution and help get us back into the tie by nicking a goal."
