Steve's View - Sheff Utd (a)

Steve's View - Sheff Utd (a)
Steve Cotterill watched as his side won at Bramall Lane for the first time in 57 years on Saturday and declared himself 'delighted.'

City played well both in attack and defence and were rewarded with the points after Wade Elliott fired home what proved to be the winner with 17 minutes left on the clock.

Before that City had taken the lead when Aaron Wilbraham opened the scoring on 20 minutes before Michael Higdon leveled things 12 minutes later.

Cotterill told the club's official website: 'We're pleased with the win. It's a really good club here, Sheffield United, and they'll be there or thereabouts, make no mistake about that.

'We needed to control the game and second half that's what we did. There were a few tweaks at half time, things that we'd forgot about after 10-15 minutes. It's hard to get that message back on but we reinforced it at half time and in the second half I felt we looked good.

'We looked very fit, we looked strong and we looked a good footballing team, which delighted me.'

We're all delighted, although we'd be even more delighted with a new keeper
