Ladies interim manager Carla Ward believes the Blades are very much moving in the right direction.

Speaking at Bramall Lane, Ward remarked: "I've been here for two or three months now, it's been interesting but enjoyable.

"When I joined the club people were looking knowing things needed changing, but we've done that and the girls have reacted positively.

"We changed a lot of things behind the scenes, including when we train, but the reaction has been excellent."

There is free football for Blades fans at the SteelPhalt Academy on Sunday, when United host Radcliffe Olympic, kick-off 2pm and Ward is hoping supporters continue to support the ladies team with over 150 in attendance for the recent victory over Rotherham United at Shirecliffe.

She added: "People would think I was an attacking player! We do work a lot on our attacking play but that's just me.

"To score 25 in our last four games shows we doing something right, it's hard for people not to take notice of us and that's really pleasing.

"It's a big game against Radcliffe at the weekend, we dropped points there earlier in the season and the girls were disappointed, but because of how they play, they are always a potential banana skin.

"It's a six pointer, they are three points behind us and are unbeaten in six, so hopefully by 4pm on Sunday we can have ended that run."
