George Baldock felt the Blades sent out another 'massive statement' to the Championship by beating Leeds at Elland Road.
Reflecting on the success in West Yorkshire, Baldock remarked: "It was a massive game on Friday and a terrific result in a fantastic atmosphere.
"It wasn't really comparable to the Wednesday game, but it was still an important one and one we were desperate to win.
"To go there under the lights and win when we weren't at our best was a massive statement and we've put down a marker to the rest of the division."
Baldock added: "We've perhaps exceeded early expectations but now, 14 games in I'm not too surprised with where we find ourselves and we've not been outplayed once.
"If I knew the secret to our success I would hang up the boots and become a manager myself, but the team cohesion, organisation and belief we have in each other goes a long way.
"We also have plenty of quality within our squad and we've proved that on a number of occasions."
