SHEFFIELD United defender Harry Maguire claimed ‘the best is yet to come’ as Danny Wilson’s side climbed to the top of League One.

Maguire was speaking after last night’s goalless draw at Swindon Town saw the visitors leapfrog Tranmere Rovers in the table and ensure their unbeaten record in the competition this term remained intact.

Maguire, who came close to snatching a late winner against Paolo Di Canio’s charges, told The Star: “There’s still so many areas where we can still improve. We’re taking nothing for granted because we know we can get better and that’s what we’re aiming to do.

“There’s lots for us still to work on but being where we are shows that we must be doing something right.

“Really, though, we’re not looking at our of anyone else’s position in the division at the moment.

“We’re just focusing on ourselves and trying to make sure we get to where we want to be one step at a time.”

Wilson claimed the absence of any dressing room egos - “We don’t have them. The lads are confident but they’re not in it for themselves” - is responsible for his side’s impressive sequence of results.

Rovers could reclaim the summit if they secure a positive result against Hartlepool this evening but Maguire echoed his manager’s sentiments.

“We’re a really tight bunch and we all help each other out,” he added.

“There’s been a lot of talk about the number of clean sheets we’ve been getting but that’s only because the lads in midfield and attack come back to do their bit.”
