Sheffield United left back Matt Hill says the Blades have to start stringing results together quickly or they’ll be fighting a relegation battle for the rest of the season.

Hill returns to Bristol City on Saturday - the club where he started his career - hoping United can turn around their fortunes and see them begin to move out of the bottom four.

He said: “It does feel like it (a relegation battle). We’re coming off at the end of matches frustrated that we haven’t won and then we look at the stats and see they’ve only had one or two shots.

“Whether it’s down to our mistakes or 25 yards shots such as at Colchester and Shrewsbury that nestled into our net we have to sort it out and get the ball rolling in terms of results.”

United manager Nigel Clough urged his players to look at the league table after their 2-1 defeat by Gillingham at Bramall Lane last Saturday.

Hill, aged 32, said the squad remains positive but is aware of their predicament: “It’s a combination of focusing on the next match and also being realistic of the situation we’re in at the moment.

“A club of this size isn’t used to being down there and we’re not liking it.”
