Midfielder Oli Norwood admits Sheffield United are keen to take out their Villa Park frustration on Middlesbrough when Tony Pulis' men visit Bramall Lane tomorrow evening.

On Friday evening, United surrendered a 3-0 lead away at Aston Villa to draw 3-3, with the hosts netting three times in the final 13 minutes of the game to deny the Blades three points which would have sent them top of the Championship for the evening.

And Norwood, who will make his 30th appearance in United colours against Pulis' fifth-placed Boro tomorrow night, said: "There won't be many teams who go to Villa Park and dominate in such fashion. 

"The crowd went from about 35,000 to about 20,000 with ten minutes to go, but they missed - from their point of view - the entertaining bit.

"For 80 minutes, it was the complete performance but the last ten minutes was the complete opposite.

"We're bitterly disappointed, obviously, but we need to put it to bed and for us as a group, the Boro game can't come quick enough.
