Blackwell: Vital three points
08 Apr 2009 - 10:36:30
Kevin Blackwell believes Sheffield United's 2-1 victory over Barnsley could prove to be a pivotal moment in the race for automatic promotion.
The in-form Blades closed to within three points of the top two following goals in the final eight minutes from John-Joe O'Toole and Arturo Lupoli.
"Tonight they (top two) were looking and it's 0-0 with 70-odd minutes to go and then two goals go in, so psychologically they know that Sheffield United are chasing them," said Blackwell.
"The lads have shown terrific spirit to chase them down because at one point Wolves were 14 points ahead.
"To be as close as we are now is terrific credit to this side."
