SHEFFIELD United manager Danny Wilson applauded a “superb all-round performance” after watching his side climb to second in League One with an emphatic victory over Yeovil Town.
Gary Johnson, Wilson’s counterpart at Huish Park, described United as a “Championship team in the making” following last night’s contest at Bramall Lane.
Wilson, whose players have now won 10 of their previous 11outings, once again refused to place too much emphasis on the table - “There’s still a long, long way to go” - but acknowledged: “I could go through every single one of the lads and say they all had a good game. That speaks volumes.
“To hit 50 points at this stage is very important because, if you can maintain that type of return, then you know you should be in with a decent shout.
“We know we’ll face footballing teams between now and the end (of the season) and we know we’ll face teams who are going to try and knock us around.
“But, on that evidence, I think we are pretty capable of handling both.
“Providing, of course, we maintain the same standards.”
Goals from Richard Cresswell, Michael Doyle and a Lee Williamson brace moved United to within four points of leaders Charlton Athletic ahead of Saturday’s visit to Bury.
“We see Michael and Lee hit those all the time in training,” Wilson added. “Sometimes when they play they try to be unselfish and set-up others but I’ve told them to have a go because I’m not bothered about them missing.
“I’d be more bothered if people don’t have a go.”
Meanwhile, Fulham have attempted to hijack Leicester City’s move for Doncaster Rovers’ Billy Sharp.
Fulham entered the race for Sharp’s signature by expressing their interest in taking him to the capital instead.
Officials at Bramall Lane are monitoring the situation after negotiating a sell-on fee with Rovers when Sharp left United in 2010.
