Chris Wilder has reiterated he won't be 'moaning and groaning' about the fixture list, as the Blades prepare to face Newcastle United on Sunday.

Steve Bruce's Magpies have yet to play since the action resumed in midweek, whilst United played a rearranged fixture against Aston Villa, but Wilder says his team have to deal with the schedule in the coming weeks and is refusing to believe either side has any advantage from the situation.

Reflecting on the corresponding fixture at Bramall Lane back in December, Wilder admitted Newcastle 'did a job on us', but says the Blades have done that to a number of clubs on the road this season too.

The Blades boss added his side are hungry for more of the Premier League, but conceded as a football man he has been frustrated at times by the impact VAR has had on the top-flight this term, with Wilder believing many of his press conferences are often dominated by the subject.
