Blades boss Chris Wilder hailed the quality strike from defender John Egan but stressed he wants more goals from his defenders.

Egan netted a superb equaliser in United's 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor, with Wilder stating his delight for the Republic of Ireland international who bagged his first ever Premier League strike.

But after going close on two prior occasions, Wilder insisted that he wants the goal to be springboard for Egan, and his defensive colleagues, as the gaffer looks for more goals from the back.

Wilder also admitted it was great to see the return of Jack O'Connell from injury whilst also praised Jack Robinson who had been deputising in his absence.
