Skipper keen to retain focus

Billy Sharp doesn't believe Saturday's clash against Leeds United will make or break the automatic promotion hopes of either team.

Speaking ahead of the Blades early kick-off at Elland Road, the skipper remarked: "West Brom had a great result the other night, having sacked their manager for whatever reason.

"They've got a bit more work to do than the ones above, but they are still in it, it's probably two from four.

"We just need to concentrate on ourselves. We need to keep sticking together and grinding out the results like we have been doing."

Sharp added: "Personally for me it would be brilliant to win the golden boot, but that's not my aim, my aim is to help get this club back to the Premier League.

"I said a few weeks ago, I'd be delighted not to score again this season if it meant we won promotion, that was before the hat-trick at Villa, because it would be an amazing achievement.

"I'm raring to go, I want to play every game but the Gaffer has decisions to make and we've been winning regardless of who has been selected, which is a major positive."
