Ollie Norwood insists the Blades are very much still in the mix for automatic promotion with four games remaining.

Speaking ahead of the Good Friday encounter against Nottingham Forest, the influential midfielder is confident United will bounce back from the disappointments of being pegged back by Millwall last time out.

He commented: "We're doing everything we can to stay there, but it's not easy, if it was every team would be up there.

"We've given it a right good go and with four games left we will continue to do so. If one of the teams above us slips up, we don't want to slip up ourselves and think what might have been.

"We will go for it, we will try everything we can and it won't be for the want of trying to achieve that."

Norwood continued: "The group of players here are used to being successful and winning matches, this group has a certain mentality and it hurt last Saturday, it really did hurt us.

"There is a group of players and staff here who have driven the club on under the Gaffer, from where it was to where it is now you wouldn't have envisage it happening so quick.

"We deserve some credit for where we've taken it having only been in this division two years."
