Chris Wilder expects a 'proper' test against Fulham at Bramall Lane on Tuesday evening.
Speaking ahead of welcoming the Cottagers to S2, Wilder remarked: "We're grounded in our approach, it's not for me or my players to comment on other team's situations, we'll leave that to the media.
"We're preparing for a team that not so long ago were in the Premier League. It is an excellent club and last season they came very close to getting out of the division, losing a tight play-off semi-final against Reading.
"They went close last season and they've kept they best players. This is another proper Championship game against a talented group of players and a very good manager."
The Blades boss added: "We'll be prepared for them turning up with their A game and it'll be up to us to drive the game forward.
"It's massive game for us psychologically, we've got to recover from what happened at Burton and go again."
