Sheffield Utd boss Wilder: Beating Wolves among my biggest results

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder hailed his team's win over Wolverhampton Wanderers as one of the biggest of his career.

The Blades were not fancied after a series of poor displays since the Premier League restart, but they were on their game against Wolves.

And a late goal from John Egan got them all three points as they continue to push for European qualification through the league.

Wilder said after the game to reporters: "It was a huge performance. I would go as far to say as one of the biggest since I have been here.

"We were playing against a top-class team and they are a settled side. I loved watching my team, everything about it.

"A lot of teams might have thought that a draw in the last 10 minutes was a fair result off the back of a good performance and possibly it would have been. But there was no denying we were going for a win.

"We all reacted even though there were not 30,000 Sheffield United fans in. That was full of everything I require from my players and football club."
