Paul Coutts is backing the Blades to bounce back over the festive period as he readies himself to attend Bramall Lane as a supporter on Boxing Day.
Coutts and his family plan to attend the Boxing Day clash with Sunderland, which will be the first time he has seen his team-mates in 'live' action since breaking his leg at Burton in November.
But the influential midfielder, with the help of Sky Sports, has managed to follow the fortunes of United in recent weeks and feels the performances have been matched with the deserved points.
He remarked: "I've seen two of the home games on the television and we probably deserved six points from those which would have seen us sitting in a healthier position in the league, but we're still doing really well.
"I'm not a good watcher of games, we've dominated the games I've watched but not put teams to bed and I feared the worst when Flecky was sent off against Bristol City.
"It's been frustrating watching, especially with things not going right in recent weeks, but there's nothing I can do to help."
Coutts added: "The mental side of things is going to be the toughest battle, but I've been fine, thanks to the support of the club, the supporters and most importantly my partner.
"I'm back amongst it now and that helps, it's great to be back amongst the lads and they are just happy to have chance on the pool table now.
"I'm working hard on my rehabilitation and in the gym and I'm just hoping that time flies by and I'll be back before you know it."
