Blades? boss Neil Warnock believes that Monday?s 4-1 home thrashing by fellow promotion contenders Watford offers a glimmer of hope for the pack of promotion contenders who are chasing Sheffield United?s second automatic promotion spot.

?It has given a glimmer of light to the other teams but I?m pleased with what we have already got. ?We just need to put our own house in order because we have got a hard game coming up on Saturday,? the fifty-five year-old boss told sufc.com.

Warnock also lamented his side?s defensive errors, surely something that will have to be improved on if United are going to retain second place in the Championship. ?We have to get back to defending better ? people like Leigh Bromby had a poor game, but he has been excellent all season, he will soon be beck in the swing of it.?

On the televised thrashing by Watford Warnock added: ?I think it was just one of those things, we started sluggish, gave them a goal and were just coming in to when then sending off happened. ?After that it was a hard task and we also started the second half sluggish and were punished again. ?The lads worked hard, I was pleased with the goal but their third killed us off.?

Indeed it did.
