John Fleck hopes Saturday's Yorkshire derby against Leeds United will give the Blades the ideal opportunity to get the season back on track.

United enter the lunchtime kick-off in 8th place in the Sky Bet Championship, but Fleck is adamant hopes of a top-six finish remain a realistic possibility.

He commented: "As the manager said after Wolves, we have to click the restart button and go again.

"The play-offs remain the aim for us, we were well beaten at Wolves, but some of the other defeats have been very disappointing recently.

"They've gone now though, and we're focused on a big game on Saturday. There are 16 games to go and we have to start putting wins together and see where it takes us."

On the opposition, Fleck added: "Leeds have been similar to us recently and lost their manager last weekend.

"They've brought the manager in from Barnsley and I'm sure they will be all out to impress at the weekend."
