Wilder's Bradford verdict

18 April 2017

Chris Wilder was again full of praise for his players, following the 28th win of the campaign, this time over Bradford City on Easter Monday.

Leon Clarke netted a brace to take his tally to five in his last four matches, whilst skipper Billy Sharp scored his 27th of the season as United set a new club record for most wins in a season.

And Wilder was understandably delighted post-match, he remarked: "We turned up and performed again and I'm not surprised. I said we'd down tools after the Chesterfield game and not before and we are still working hard.

"I thought we were excellent and the goals we scored were fantastic. Bradford are a decent side and we didn't give them a chance of getting a result, I could pick spots if I wanted but I don't, it was a great effort.

"It is another terrific result and fitting for the supporters that have backed us in incredible numbers throughout the season."

The Blades boss added: "I ask a lot from the players in terms of the functional stuff, but I personally believe we are the best footballing side in the division, at times we're unplayable.

"We've got some talented individuals in the squad they've gelled together unbelievably well. The way we play as a team, both in and out of possession has been excellent all season, we're versatile and able to adapt to different circumstances within games.

"To be crowned Champions on Saturday and to produce a performance like that, these are memorable moments for everyone connected with the club that should live with us all forever."
