Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson felt that his side were doing quite well up until Birmingham got their first goal on Saturday.

In his opinion the Blades had more than held their own and were probably the better side.

But once the first goal had been conceded, it was just a question of how many Blues would get, much to the annoyance of Wilson and the United fans.

However, he did concede that in the end, Blues were the better team.

Wilson said: ‘The first three goals came at a time when we were possibly in the ascendancy.

‘It was great finishing from them. They made the most of their chances.

‘We had similar situations and did not make the most of them and they certainly have made the most of them.

‘That first goal was very important. It was a bit of quick thinking from their point of view and a bit of slow thinking from ours.

‘I thought we were doing very well until that time. We started the game very well and caused them quite a few problems.

‘The quality of their play was always going to cause us problems. What they had at the end was the goals to show for it.

‘We said at half-time that it was important to get a goal and try and make a game of it.

‘It was bit of lucky defending and a bit of luck from the post which denied us a goal.

‘I thought our performance was good at times but I’m not complaining about the outcome of the game because I thought they deserved to win it.’
