United manager Chris Wilder says his side had enough chances to win the game as the Blades were edged out by a late Patrick Bamford header in defeat to Leeds.

The game looked as though it was heading for a goalless draw until Bamford headed in Jack Harrison's cross with two minutes remaining.

The Blades created numerous presentable opportunities, with Wilder stating afterwards there were more than enough chances fashioned to win the contest.

Wilder was also disappointed that a free kick wasn't awarded to United in the build-up to the winning goal, stating he felt midfielder Sander Berge was fouled.

Overall, the Blades boss felt his side did enough to win a tight game, praising his side's energy levels and commitment throughout.

Wilder acknowledged that the Blades should have scored as he aims to try and improve his side's fortunes in the final third going forward.

The Blades boss also revealed that defender Jack O'Connell will struggle to play again this season as he faces 'five to six months' out of action. Wilder stated the former Brentford ace will have an operation on his knee this Wednesday after failing to fully overcome an issue sustained at the back end of last season.
