Harper defends under-fire Blackwell
The injury-hit Blades lost a third successive league match for the first time since April 2007 when going down in a seven-goal thriller at home to Cardiff and a small group of fans vented their frustration after the match in the Bramall Lane car park. But Harper, on a season-long loan from Reading, said: "We train hard, the gaffer gets us going and we are fully behind him. We will continue to work hard and hopefully things will start to go for us soon. "I hate losing, as we all do, but at least the signs are there that we are close to coming out of this run. "Cardiff are flying at the moment and are scoring goals for fun but when Newcastle come to our patch we don't need any motivation because we will be going out all guns blazing."
