Chris Wilder remained typically upbeat in the aftermath of Friday's Sheffield derby stalemate against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Blades boss commented: "They've all got to be able to handle the ball, not one of them gets it and smacks it forward, that's hope football, ours in constructed, we break the shape up.

"We try and play and we'll continue to try and play. I could easily set a team up to go back to front, this is our way and when we play to our way we are a very, very good side.

"Things just wouldn't drop, credit to them for continually putting their bodies on the line and the goalkeeper has made saves when needed, but nothing really dropped for us."

Wilder added: "Even at the death with Billy's header, it's a yard or so behind, if that's in front of him, he probably heads a last minute winner in front of the Kop.

"But I enjoyed the night and the remembrance tributes were observed impeccably.

"You sometimes get caught up in the football, but that was special and the way it was received and acknowledged by both sets of supporters was outstanding."
