Billy Sharp felt the Blades did enough to beat Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Saturday, having recovered from going behind late in the first-half.
Speaking in the aftermath of the 1-1 draw in Suffolk, after netting his 12th goal of the season, the Blades skipper was upbeat despite being forced to settle for a point in a game United dominated.
He commented: "We got ourselves back into the game early in the second-half and I thought there was only going to be one winner.
"They were vulnerable after we'd scored and another one then would have proved decisive, but in the end they held on.
"They changed their approach after we'd scored and we looked the only winner, we just couldn't get the ball in the net for a second time."
The skipper added: "We knew it was going to be difficult, fair play to Ipswich, they've picked up of late and put up a good fight, we're just disappointed not to have won the game.
"We're conceding poor goals at the moment and we're having to work really hard for ours at the other end.
"We'll keep going and we're still in the play-offs going into the Boxing Day fixture against Derby County."
