Pressley's Sheffield United reaction

20 October 2015

The Cod Army were beaten 3-0 by the Blades

Steven Pressley gave his reaction to the Club's website following the defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane this evening.

Che Adams put the Blades ahead as early as the second minute with a near post finish before adding a second after the break.

Billy Sharp made it three for Nigel Adkins' men just after 70 minutes as he converted a low cross from inside the six yard box.

Pressley said: "When you come here you've got to make sure in the opening exchanges that you don't go behind.

"For 44 minutes of the first half I thought we were excellent tactically.

"We lost an early goal and as a result of that we were always chasing the game.

"In the middle two thirds we were the better side but they were more clinical up at the top end of the pitch.

"After a really impressive performance from our front three on Saturday against Burton, we didn't quite get that creativity and that threat from them.

"The difference between the sides tonight was that they took their opportunities and we didn't."
