Chris Wilder says he will always remember the 'scenes' United enjoyed following Sunday's final game of the season at Stoke City.

Reflecting on the celebrations with the near 3,000 travelling supporters at the Bet365 Stadium, Wilder commented: "The scenes here will live with me forever and hopefully they will for the supporters as well.

"This is a special team, a special group of players, who deserves to be talked about, they deserve an enormous amount of credit."

On the game itself, Wilder added: "It was like a game of basketball in the second-half, it epitomised what we're about. We'd started well, but made a couple of individual errors after that.

"How for the life of me the first goal isn't offside and the major talking point is the fabulous one-handed save from Ryan Shawcross not long after.

"It's been a difficult week for the players really, to reach the Premier League in the manner they've done it and the emotion that goes with it.

"It wasn't easy to back up for another game and we were off it in the first-half, we had words about going out the front door at half-time and a draw was a fair result, without a doubt."
