Chris Wilder wants more from his players despite admitting he is delighted with United's current standing in the Sky Bet Championship.

Saturday's win at Reading lifted the Blades back into third spot, much to the delight of the manager, who remarked: "We've recovered well from the Leeds defeat and we've come roaring back yet again.

"I'm not looking or worrying about other results, we are third in the division and although I want us to get better more than anyone, but you have to enjoy these moments and we're ahead of some, big powerful clubs.

"We're right in the mix and we should shout it from the roof tops."

Wilder added: "I've got decisions to make and I might not always make the right ones, but we felt we could win this game by playing as we did against Brentford, knowing we had Billy and Mark Duffy to make an impact off the bench.

"His attitude to not playing is selfless, both him and Duffs are team players. Both disallowed goals were the correct decisions, but we were getting into some good positions, even in the first-half."
