Chris Wilder is looking forward to Saturday's South Yorkshire derby at Bramall Lane, but has warned against complacency ahead of Rotherham United's visit.

The Blades boss remarked: "We were very fortunate to get a result at their place, despite going back in front late on.

"It's one of the few occasions we'd not played well and got a positive result, because there have been many times when we have played well and not nicked one.

"If it wasn't for Dean Henderson's performance that day they'd have got all three points and if I had been Paul (Warne) or Richie (Barker), or the supporters at Rotherham I'd have felt aggrieved not to have taken more from the game.

"We were off it a little bit and they were right at it, so it can happen and it was one we learnt from."

Wilder added: "I've nothing but respect for what those guys down the road have achieved. They've different targets to us and it would be a fabulous achievement if they retain their Championship status.

"They always give themselves an opportunity of winning a game because of the attitude of the management and togetherness of the players.

"If our supporters just expect us to stroll round and win the game comfortably on Saturday they would be wrong, we will have to do a lot of things right and play well to earn the victory."
