Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder said:
"We're going to endure some tough nights, we totally understand that coming into the division after six years out of it, but we haven't been overrun against players who can hurt you.
"We've had two really tough games against Middlesbrough and Cardiff, but we haven't embarrassed ourselves.
"We competed well enough against the league leaders, we never folded and kept going to the end, but we do need to get better."
