Chris Wilder says he is focused on his side picking up from where they left off prior to the international break, when they visit Derby County on Saturday.

Speaking of the opposition that will await his side in front of the Sky Cameras at Pride Park, Wilder acknowledged his side will have to be at their best to extend a current five-game unbeaten run.

He commented: "I'm not surprised Derby have had a good start, it's a huge club in the division, they've changed manager from a very good one, to one I'd expect to be successful too.

"Frank's brought his own ideas to Derby, he's changed the way they play, just like I did when I came here, I put our stamp on things quickly, whether it is players coming in or going out.

"There is a huge amount of games to go though, people must remember we're only 12 games into the season and for us I just want us to keep things ticking over.

"We'll need to play well to get a result at Derby and the players are well aware of that."

On facing Frank Lampard's Rams, Wilder added: "I'm not really bothered about looking at what others managers do, I'm focused on myself and what I do for this club.

"You are always learning, I've not got some of the experiences other managers have got and they've not got some of the experiences I've got.

"I go about it in my way, I'm not copying or cloning myself on anybody, I use my experience and that of my staff to try and move my football club forward."
