An emotional Chris Wilder admits everyone at Sheffield United is "hurting" after their poor start to the new season.

Wilder is still searching for his first win as Blades boss since succeeding Nigel Adkins, and the Blades slipped to the bottom of League One after losing 2-1 at Millwall yesterday.

And Wilder, a boyhood Blades fan, said: "It's disappointing for everyone at the football club. One point from four games isn't good enough.

"We started well and went behind against the run of play, and showed great steel to get back in the game and dominated the first half. But when you're on top, you have to put teams to bed and that's been the downfall for us. I've let the players think about their own performances, think about what's happened over the last four games and make a more sensible appraisal on Monday.

"If you've been involved with this club and you feel a lot about the club, as I do, you get very emotional about the start we've had and I need to take myself out of that situation and make a more considered approach on Monday because one point out of four games is not good enough and we're all hurting."

United return to action next weekend at home to one of Wilder's former clubs, Oxford.
