Chris Wilder is refusing to get carried away, despite the Blades currently sitting in the automatic promotion place.
Speaking after Saturday's comfortable win over Reading, the Blades boss remarked: "We're in the race, we want to keep it going, but we're not looking too far ahead.
"We've got West Brom next, who have just come out of the Premier League and have everything that is associated with a top football club.
"They've kept all the players, well the majority and added too. It's huge challenge for us and there is a lot of football to be played.
Wilder added: "There are going to be some high moments, like we've enjoyed at Bramall Lane in the last week or so, but there will be lows like at Villa Park.
"We deserved to be in our position, but we have to look at the next game and keep going. I can't affect anyone else or their results, we have to focus on ourselves."
