As was seen with his celebrations after Billy Sharp last-gasp winner, boss Chris Wilder was delighted to see his side overcome Norwich City at Bramall Lane.

Wilder ran the length of the touchline after the skipper's winning goal, but having composed himself and got his breath, he was of the opinion that his side got the reward their efforts deserved.

He laughed: "It's a brilliant feeling, you've got the enjoy it, I think I got halfway up the Kop at one stage and scared a few people!

"A few people, including the wife looked at me like I'd lost the plot and it took me 30 minutes to calm down, but that's what you are in football for, moments like that.

"We've had a few of those occasions go against us last season and it's a dagger blow, even against Swansea we got caught late on we didn't deserve it, but I thought we deserved that winner.

"Norwich are a good side, it was great finish from Jordan Rhodes, but it was a disappointing goal for us and we were well on top at the time."

The manager added: "It was quiet in the changing room at half-time but we got into them and I said we're level and very much in the game.

"Second-half the reaction was good, Norwich had the ball in areas where they could have and we got in areas where we thought we could hurt them and we did in the end.

"We kept going, we got men in the box, Ollie's delivery was excellent and we were positive in our play, it would have been harsh on us to draw that game, let alone lose it."
