John Egan echoed the sentiments of boss Chris Wilder following Saturday's 'deserved' victory over Norwich City at Bramall Lane.

The Republic of Ireland international headed home early on, with goal line technology confirming his first goal for the Blades, but it was the last-gasp winner that Egan focused on.

He remarked: "It was a fantastic end to the game, it was petering out to a draw, neither side looked like getting a winner, but it was a brilliant ball from Bash, Didsy (David McGoldrick) did brilliantly and Billy is the man that is always there.

"I think it was a deserved win in the end, we were excellent for the first 25 minutes and could have had more goals to be fair, then they score with probably their only chance of the half.

"We were creating the better chances and on another day we could have had three or four."

The defender was more than happy with his opener but was keen to praise United's togetherness following a second consecutive victory in the Sky Bet Championship.

Egan added: "In the second-half both teams went to try and win the game, we always go for it and it paid off in the end.

"I've also managed to score a good few goals in my career, I should have one or two against Hull and with Ollie's delivery, they are always on the money and I could have had a second too.

"We're playing well as a team, everyone is working hard for each other, we're doing the dirty work too and we're digging deep and doing things collectively.

"We'll need to rest the legs now and then focuses turn to Bolton from Monday onwards."
