Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder: 'Performance at Hull City not good enough'

Wilder critical of performance at Hull
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder admits that his side deserved to lose against Hull City in the Championship.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has admitted that his side did not deserve anything from their Yorkshire debut at Hull City, a match they lost 1-0.

The Blades boss admitted that his side are unlikely to finish in the top six of the Championship if they continue to perform the way they did at the KC Stadium.

Wilder told BBC Sport: "We didn't deserve anything from the game and I'm wasting my time and energy thinking we're going to get into the top six because to produce a performance like we have with everything at stake is not good enough, and won't be good enough to get in the top six. I've told the players that.

"I thought we'd got ourselves back on track by winning two big games of football and thought we could go and win a third but we produced a flat performance from start to finish.

"Every part of our game was below the standards that we've set. We've not shown the qualities that are needed to get in the playoffs."

The defeat, which came courtesy of Nouha Dicko's second-half strike, leaves the Blades in seventh place in the table.
