Manager: It is a fantastic win for the Club

Boss hails great three points in Yorkshire

Manager Graham Alexander hailed his squad of players after a fantastic display at Bramall Lane this afternoon.

Josh Morris opened the scoring for Town with a fine strike on 25 minutes before Nick Haughton doubled the advantage ten minutes later.

Matt Done pulled one back for the Blades soon after Haughton’s strike, however the Cod Army produced a disciplined display to earn all three points.

Alexander said: “We’re so pleased for the players. I thought they were superb today and showed some great composure and discipline throughout the performance.

“They showed every aspect you need to get a victory. We scored two fantastic goals and it’s a fantastic day for everyone connected with the Club.

“To come to a giant like Sheffield United in our first season in League One and get the victory is a great achievement for us all.

“It was about playing the game today and not the crowd. We had to play the opposition and it was a big day for focus and discipline.

“We had to dig in because we knew what was going to come in the second half, but I thought we were very disciplined and I’m so pleased for everybody.

“We had to not dive in and give cheap free kicks away. We had to stand up and make it hard for the opposition.

“We did that for the majority of the game and kept the ball well when we had to as well as keeping our composure.

“You could see the improvement from every single player from other games we’ve played away from home this season against massive clubs.”

The manager praised the quality of Town’s goals, and felt his side were worthy of their win in South Yorkshire.

“We’ve had Josh for nearly a year now and we love having him with us. It was great interplay up to him for his goal and it was a fantastic strike.

“We didn't know whether to rest Nick or not because he’s played two games this week, but we thought with the shape it was going to be that he could be the link between midfield and attack.”
