Sheffield Utd can match Premier League record at Norwich

Sheffield United are on the brink of matching a Premier League record today against Norwich City.

Avoiding defeat at Norwich on Sunday and Sheffield United will match Kenny Dalglish's Blackburn Rovers as the only newly-promoted team to remain unbeaten in their first eight away games during the Premier League era.

"We've been consistent in our approach, home or away. We don't do anything different," says Wilder.

"We played one of the best sides in the division on Sunday (Wolves) and wanted to get out of the traps quickly. It's the same as always and has worked well for us. We need to be bang at it on Sunday to keep the run going."

He added: "The attitude has been great. The boys roll their sleeves up and embrace the challenge.

"Mentally, they are a very strong group. We saw that last season by going to Leeds and West Brom and getting results when the pressure was on for promotion."
