Blades make one change, Lundstram in for Berge

Billy Sharp put the Blades ahead in the first half 

Wilder's immediate response

"I really thank the supporters for riing us on because there was a lot of tired bodies out there. It was a difficult afternoon, they changed their shape and went diamond, it caused a lot of teams probelms. 

We were a little bit disappointed we didn't get the second goal. We didn;t get the ball out of the middle because there was a lot of bodies there. We were good in both boxes, especially from a defensive point of view. 

The goalkeeper has made a couple of terrific saves. It's another win. 43 points at this stage of the season. I was delighted when we got to 40 after the Brighton game and we were all a bit frustrated afterwards, me included. We took a step back, analysed it. We have a great FA Cup quarter-final tie around the corner for the club and yet again a huge connection between supporters and players and staff and that is asbolutely priceless."

Take a bow Dean Henderson

A remarkable save from the home goalkeeper to keep out not one Norwich effort but two as the ball hits the post and rebounds to a Norwich forward - but Henderson, with McGoldrick's help, keeps it out via the crossbar!
