David Weir last night predicted his Sheffield United squad will soon realise its potential after acknowledging changes behind the scenes have had a detrimental effect upon results, writes James Shield.

And the former Scotland international, whose side travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend hoping to avoid a sixth consecutive League One defeat, insisted the methods now being implemented offer long-term benefits at Bramall Lane.

Eleven new players have joined United since Weir’s appointment in June and the 43-year-old said: “There have been lots of changes here; personnel, style and also, of course, myself as manager.

“That’s not an excuse because I don’t make those - we still want to deliver results - but it is a fact and things don’t always gel straight away.

“We need to get things set in stone here. We’re developing something to suit our players and we will get there.”

“My message to people is stick with us and we’ll get this right,” Weir added. “Absolutely.

“We want to develop a formula that brings the best out of our players. We just all need to stick together.

“There’s never an infinite amount of time in football but I genuinely feel there are also lots of positives here.”
