Billy Sharp was in the right place at the right time for both goals at Ewood Park, but thanked his teammates for putting each on a plate.

"All the credit has to go to the boys, because the delivery at the moment is superb. I've had to have two bites at the cherry from Didsy's ball for the first, and Enda's cross was brilliant. We've been talking in training, he's been working hard practising and for me it was one I couldn't really miss, my eyes lit up. It was another great team performance and another three points away from home at a difficult place to come to."

The Blades skipper believes the side is in a rich vein of form, and added: "Saturday was a game we'd have lost last season but we found a way to win and we talked about backing it up with another performance, we've produced one and won another game. We go into the weekend full of confidence and hopefully we can finish the week with another victory."

He continued: "We've put a statement out there with two away wins in the space of five days, it's huge for confidence and I'm delighted with the clean sheet too. We've got to keep grinding away and be ready to go again on Saturday."

Another highlight from the trip to Ewood was Paul Coutts' return to first-team action: "I'm delighted for Paul, he's worked so hard and had been such a huge loss. It was a special moment for him and understandably he received a tremendous reception from the fans."
