Chris Wilder: 'Sheffield United must learn to adapt in the Championship'

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder says that his side must learn to do better in the Championship ahead of their league fixture against Middlesbrough.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has said that his team must learn to do better in the Championship ahead of their game against Middlesbrough tonight.

United lost 2-1 at home against Swansea City in their season-opening Championship fixture on Saturday, after a late winner by Yan Dhanda.

"We have to learn about the division, about different ways of going about things and recognise we can't always just steamroller teams," Wilder said in a pre-match press conference. "This is a tough division that we're looking to do well in so there's always a balance to be struck.

"Don't be embarrassed if the other team has the ball. Don't be obsessed by having the ball all the time. Listen, I'll bark at people if they don't go after the ball when they should be. But I won't bark at people if they're not running when they should be sitting in.

"In a way it's a positive though. There's an honesty about the group that, possibly, if they don't run and go to press they feel bad. I trust the group though. It's about saying 'I trust you to sit back and not to press' in certain situations."

Wilder's side will face Middlesbrough in a 7.45pm kickoff tonight at the Riverside Stadium.
