Chris Wilder is challenging all of his players to contributed goals to the team in the coming weeks and months.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's trip to Bristol City, the Blades boss highlighted the need for goals from all areas of the pitch, after four different scorers were on target in the 4-1 win over Aston Villa.

Wilder remarked: "There will always be a different outlook on the way we play. People will say we need to cross it more or shoot from distance when we aren't set, I'm not a believer in that.

"We work the ball patiently in and around the opposition's box and we do have to pick the right time and the right pass, but ultimately we're looking for more goals midfield.

"Some time players get a bigger buzz off sticking someone else in to score than scoring themselves, but we need a set amount of goals from the strikers and the midfield group must chip in and score goals for us."

The manager added: "That will enable us to reach a tally that should help us progress and be involved come the end of the season at the top end of the pitch.

"What is pleasing is the goals are being spread around. Jack (O'Connell) is off the mark, John (Egan) has scored as well and it's important the defenders score too."
