Chris Basham was refusing to be drawn on targets for the season ahead when he spoke to the media prior to Saturday's Championship opener against Brentford at Bramall Lane.
Basham remarked: "The Gaffer hasn't put down a marker on where he expects us to be, but what he do expects is for us to go there give everything we've got and try and win every game.
"We'll see where that takes us and come Christmas time we'll have a better indication of where we are going to be."
The experienced performer added: "We'll look to take small steps to start with and focus on each game as it comes, we're always looking to strengthen and improve.
"We're all ready and raring to go. We play an exciting formation where we create chances, score goals and we're tight defensively."
