Chris Wilder hopes to see his players replicate their performance from last season's clash at Griffin Park, when the Blades head to the capital on Tuesday evening.

But the Blades boss will want to go one better in terms of the result against the Bees, as the Blades look to return to winning ways after consecutive draws.

On the challenge that awaits, he remarked: "It's been a difficult period of time for them, given the change of manager, but like so many games in the Championship, they've been involved in a lot of tight ones.

"It's always a tough place to go, they've still got the core of a group of players who have performed well in this division for two or three years now.

"They've got a set style of play, you know what you are going to come up against, but when they say yes and click they are an excellent attacking team who are a handful for any opposition."

Wilder added: "Our performance there last season was outstanding, we nullified their threats and really took the game to them, especially second-half and I want something similar on Tuesday night.

"People talk about us as been a passing side, I want us to be an all-round good team and we were a good team on Saturday.

"We gave the ball away, didn't compete and gave poor goals away, that wasn't good enough and not where we want to be as an all-round football team."
