Saturday's 2-1 victory over Charlton showed the strides Sheffield United have made under boss Chris Wilder.
That's the view of James Shield, The Star's Sheffield United writer, after goals from Jack O'Connell and Danny Lafferty saw United come from behind and go ten points clear of third-placed Fleetwood.
"Jack O'Connell came out afterwards and said 'we aren't scared of pressure and we enjoy ourselves out there' but there will have been times out there when they won't have enjoyed it," James said.
"They had to really dig in and fight, and I think that showed the impressive strides that the club has made under Chris Wilder.
"Yes, they have a lot of good players but they also have ones that enjoy rolling up their sleeves and turning up - week in, week out."
