DANNY Wilson has revealed why he feels Sheffield United have a duty to entertain their supporters along the League One finishing straight.

Wilson, the United manager, was speaking after describing news that around 6,000 supporters will make the journey from South Yorkshire to MK Dons today as “phenomenal”.

“We’ve always wanted the people who come to watch us to be excited,” he said. “They shouldn’t just feel as if they’ve got to turn up to watch us because they’ve been fans for a long time.

“We feel as if they should get something for their money. They’ve got a right to expect that I think.”

United, who could be promoted back to the Championship if they beat Karl Robinson’s fourth-placed side, have won an army of admirers for their attacking style this season.

Wilson, who admitted striker Richard Cresswell and defender Marcus Williams are both doubts for this afternoon’s match, added: “To have so many coming down with us shows they’ve got belief in what we’re trying to do.

“But it’s not party time. There’s still some distance to go and we won’t be distracted by any other games.

“We’re not expecting anyone to do us any favours so performances and results are our priority.”
