Sheffield Utd boss Wilder assures fans: I know these players care

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has defended his players after their FA Cup win against Bristol Rovers.

The Blades ended an 18-game winless streak against League One opposition who fought back twice, before Jayden Bogle had the final word.

"They care, they hurt, they're not toilet-bag footballers," Wilder said.

"I look into their eyes and nobody's enjoyed it, not me, the coaching staff, the players and most importantly the supporters. I know they care and hopefully this lifts off them a little bit with a win, because this wasn't a straightforward game with the injuries we've had and the form we've been in.

"Outside our changing room, it was possibly deemed as a game that would go against us. I'm not being critical of that because I understand that - it goes with the territory when you don't win games of football."
