Chris Wilder says hitting the summit of the Sky Bet Championship won't change his plans during the current international break.
Saturday's success over Hull City, coupled with results elsewhere saw the Blades climb to the top of the division, but Wilder insists his players won't be resting on their laurels.
He remarked: "We're going to work hard during the break, it's down to us to main the standards now.
"We've got a target on our backs now, but I always think we have anyway after how well we've done in the last 14 months."
The boss added: "People realise now this isn't an easy place to come, but we have to be at it and what we must do now is get the down time in, rest and recover.
"We've got a fabulous game to look forward to when we return, Derby County away, live on Sky and we'll be ready.
"We must enjoy this moment and keep working hard, my group isn't afraid of getting their hands dirty and that's a good place to be."
