“The result means nothing” – These Sheffield United fans are not worried that their side lost to Burton Albion in pre-season.

Chris Wilder’s side fell to a 2-1 defeat at the Pirelli Stadium with Marcus Harness scoring a last-minute winner to condemn the Blades to defeat.

Sheffield United opened the scoring through, captain, Billy Sharp but were pegged back just before half-time thanks to, former Blade, John Brayford.

Burton are further into their pre-season training because the League One season begins earlier than the Premier League – so the result does not matter, but there will be elements of the game that worried Wilder.

He spoke in his post-match interview about some players having to “Raise their standards” and that he won’t stand for “Mediocrity.”

This implies that he was unhappy at some performances and with the Blades still looking to add to their squad – some players are going to have to improve, or they could find themselves departing Bramall Lane.

For now, though these Blades fans are not worried about the result.
