Chris Wilder reaffirmed his desire to see his side take a front foot approach at Carrow Road on Saturday.

But the Blades boss admits his side will face a stern test against the high-flying, free-scoring Canaries.

Looking ahead, Wilder remarked: "Every game is tight, but it is how you play on the day.

"If we bring our best game to the table then we will make it extremely difficult for the opposition and we're a dangerous side for them to play, they will recognise that.

"I recognise Daniel (Farke's) team and what they've got and I've been nothing other than impressed with how they've gone about it this season, the goals they've scored late in games, the commitment to go and win matches and the performance last Friday against Birmingham.

"Their position in the table doesn't lie, it's impressive, but so is ours."

Wilder added: "There is hype about how they attack, but the commit men forward to go and score goals, we did it at Swansea but unfortunately it just didn't bounce for us.

"When teams like Norwich pile on the pressure late in games, you have to concentrate and make good decisions, you've got to defend properly, keep the ball and counter attack well.

"Teams who have conceded late goals against them, the likes of Forest, Millwall and Bolton will be ruing the errors they've made defensively and the bad decisions they made under pressure."
