Sheffield United: 'We got our rewards for solid display against Ipswich' says boss Chris Wilder
Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder hailed his side's efforts after they beat Ipswich Town 1-0 at Bramall Lane.
The win puts the Blades up to second place in the Sky Bet Championship, although they lost Kieron Freeman in the 40th minute with a suspected dislocated knee.
United dominated proceedings in the opening half but failed to make it count on the scoresheet until Chris Basham met a great cross from John Fleck four minutes after the break and powerfully headed the Blades in front with his first goal in almost a year.
Wilder said: "I'm delighted. It was a good performance with a good result because we didn't do that last time out against Nottingham Forest.
"We got our rewards for a decent, solid display. To keep a clean sheet with the players they've got at the top of the pitch is very pleasing.
"Kieron Freeman is going for a scan on Monday. It was a collision in the box but I ask the players to play for us and put their bodies on the line and sometimes these things happen, so that's disappointing for him.
"He'll have a period out, but I don't know how long that's going to be. We'll find out when the scan comes back.
"I can't remember the last time Chris Basham scored but he's played a part in about 140 points in the last two years so that's not bad."
Ipswich's Martyn Waghorn was denied an equaliser by the crossbar before Leon Clarke struck a volley against the bar at the other end.
