“What we must do is show the best that is inside us. Try to put a tough test to Sheffield United and make it a difficult for them.” Those were the words of José Gomes, as he looked ahead to our visit to Bramall Lane.
“We don’t have time to think about anything else; we have to focus on the next game and give our maximum, playing under our process.
“It will be another difficult game. We travel again a long way to the north – it is difficult to play at Bramall Lane.
“So it will be a tough game for us. But we have to make it a tough game for them too, and see what happens.
“We need to play how we have been playing. We have lost just once in the last six games. We need to keep this spirit.
“If the opponent gives us space to play well, we will play our game. If it’s not possible to play well, then we need to be intelligent and collect the maximum amount of points that we can.
“That’s what we have been doing; in the last six we have lost only one. It’s a good thing for our future.
“The way that the players are fighting shows me – and shows themselves – that it is possible to collect three points in any game.
“With our team spirit, we must keep making more steps. We made one step against Blackburn but we must be realistic; we cannot think that now it is done and that we are safe. It isn’t enough; we have a lot of games in front of us and we have to keep 100% focus on our upcoming matches.”
