Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson remained upbeat about the Blades future despite losing the 126th Football League Steel City Derby at Hillsborough yesterday.

Chris O'Grady headed home after 73 minutes, his goal was enough to secure a 1-0 victory for Sheffield Wednesday who closed the gap to two points with the Blades having some advantage of two games in hand.

"We're bitterly disappointed but we're still in a very strong position. We've got a tough match coming up against Scunthorpe on Wednesday night and we've got to try and get back to winning ways now," said Wilson.

"It was a typical derby game and there were a few chances for each team. I thought we defended very well. The lads did well in that respect. But we opened a little door for them and they took the opportunity. Sheffield derbies are special days. The atmosphere is absolutely fantastic and they're games you want to be involved in."
