Chris Wilder highlighted few moments from Saturday's victory over Ipswich Town that he feels epitomises his squad.

Speaking in the aftermath of the win over Mick McCarthy's side, the Blades boss remarked: "I thought Mark Duffy was excellent, that 70 yard run back into the right-back position to make an important tackle shows what we're about.

"We demand that competitiveness, we demand they put their bodies on the line like Kieron (Freeman) did to stop the ball going in our net, but these boys don't think about the consequences.

"It's not going to be good news for Kieron, but hopefully it isn't too long. He is a fantastic lad and a valued member of the squad so we wish him all the best in his recovery."

Wilder added: "Chris (Basham) is such a popular boy, I'm surprised the staff and Jamal didn't jump on him in the far corner too because he is such a genuine, honest, wholehearted player who gives you everything.

"He has good ability and timed his run to perfection to meet the excellent cross from Flecky."
