George Baldock is backing the Blades to returning to winning ways soon, as the hectic Christmas schedule draws ever nearer.

The wing-back, who returned to the starting XI last Friday is also looking to make up for lost time, as the Blades go in search of a first win in five at Preston North End at the weekend.

But the former MK Dons man is refusing to panic about the recent dip in results.

He remarked: "It's been a horrible month or so for me personally, having to sit on the sidelines and not being able to contribute.

"The Gaffer felt the standards slipped at Millwall and he was right, but apart from that the performances, despite the results going against us, have been pretty good.

"If we carry on reproducing the performances of Bristol City and Birmingham then the tide will turn in our favour again.

"We were excellent against Bristol City and on another day could have come in 3-0 up at half-time, so the confidence very much remains.

"There is no complacency creeping in, we're not worrying or looking over our shoulders, we will just keep going about our business and hopefully a result goes our way."

On himself, Baldock added: "I'm not a good watcher and to be fair I've been playing catch up since the first day having missed much of pre-season.

"But I'm a team-player and when needed I will put my body out there even if I've not trained as much as everyone else or built those minutes up during the summer."
