Enda Stevens was keen to emphasise United's league position when he spoke to members of the media on Thursday.
The Steel City derby draw last week moved the Blades back into the play-off positions.
"Our results of late haven't been what we would have hoped, but we could have won a few of them. There's been a degree of consistency in our performances, despite the results," said the Irishman.
"Last week it wasn't happening in the final third but we still moved up a place and we're in the play-offs. The table doesn't like, we now need to just focus and kick on."
