SUFC Clough - It was a brilliant win

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough described the win at Gillingham on Wednesday night as a brilliant win.

The blades secured just their second away win of the season, a win that moves them out of the League One relegation places and Clough felt the win was fully deserved.

Speaking to BBC Radio Sheffield, Clough said, "It was a brilliant win. It was a brilliant second half performance because I didn`t think we were very good in the first half but I thought the manner that we went about things in the second half was superb.

"It was a thoroughly deserved victory, made even better when you think we made four or five changes from the weekend."


Conor Coady scored the only goal of the game for United just before the break as he made it two goals in two games.

The win over Gillingham makes it back-to-back league wins for the first time this season and United now get ready for a crucial clash with Bristol City at Bramall Lane on Saturday, with the robins only ahead of United on goal difference.

good 3 points, couldn't get there, listened on RS, bit of breathing space now. need to follow up with a win on saturday.

Good result, tactics of 3 at the back and two big men up front certainly worked. Overall I'm impressed that the players NC has brought in are all a great improvement on what we had, and also that he is tactically very astute. The tactics for the Forest game and Gillingham were totally different, but equally very effective. Impressed also that he has got the team responding so well.

I will be honest, when I saw the team I thought he was concentrating on Saturday. Great that they took another three points. Sets up Saturday nicely but the big question is, who does he drop on Saturday?
