Chris Wilder was understandably pleased after witnessing a fifth home victory of the campaign, with Ipswich Town the latest side to be beaten at Bramall Lane.

Chris Basham's second-half header in front of the Kop proved decisive as the Blades produced a dominant display against Mick McCarthy's Tractor Boys.

And Wilder was impressed by what he saw, remarking: "It was a positive performance with a clean sheet and we showed a real resilience when we had to defend to keep the ball out of the net towards the end.

"John Lundstram came in to replace Paul Coutts who has been outstanding and it was generally a very good performance and when you play well you need to pick up a result and we did.

"My team is fearless, we go for it every week and in the first-half it doesn't surprise me to see us pushing the opposition back."

The Blades boss added: "We believe in what we're doing and we're not going to change. We're pleased with where we stand and yet again we were driven over the line by excellent, passionate support from the terraces.

"It is an fantastic environment for the players to enjoy their football. If they make a mistake but the supporters know their honest, they will always forgive.

"And this is an honest group of players who go to the end regardless of the situation and I can't ask for anymore."
