Gaffer's Fleetwood verdict

21 October 2015

Nigel Adkins was happy with his players following Tuesday's comfortable victory over Fleetwood Town at Bramall Lane.

Another brace from Che Adams and a seventh of the season for Billy Sharp rounded off the scoring against Steven Pressley's Cod Army.

Speaking afterwards, Adkins remarked: "It is another win at Bramall Lane, another three goals and importantly a clean sheet against a spirited side who came and had a go on the back of a positive result at the weekend.

"The early goal from Che (Adams) helps, whilst Kieran Wallace has got two assists from left-back which is pleasing.

"We saw the game out too, Paul Coutts was good when he came on and everyone has contributed again."

The Blades boss handed a debut to loan recruit Dean Hammond, who completed an hour of Tuesday's fixture, but despite seeing his side score three goals at home for the second consecutive game, it was the nil at the other end that pleased him the most.

The Gaffer added: "We are delighted to have got Dean in; the owners deserve credit for helping make that happen, so for me we are moving in the right direction and now we get ready for Millwall.

"Che (Adams) is always a genuine threat, Matty (Done) has scored three goals since returning from injury and we have Billy (Sharp) too, so we have goals in the team and we are in the race at the top.

"But for me the clean sheet is as satisfying as the goals, this is a great Club and for it to be successful and we are going to have to keep grinding away in what is a relentless division.

"The players deserve the credit, people expect a lot of them and we do too. We want to win promotion this season and this is another win towards achieving that goal."
