Sheffield United are currently in the thick of the Championship title hunt. The Blades are currently second in the table, only two points behind first placed Norwich City.
January loan signing Scott Hogan has given an insight into the secrets behind the Bramall Lane club’s current success.

Speaking to the club’s official match day programme and website, the Aston Villa loanee was asked what factors are fuelling Chris Wilder’s side’s success. In response, the striker said: “I think this squad is a reflection of the manager. There are no big names, no egos and I always believe every good team is a reflection of what their manager is about.”
Clearly there is a unity and togetherness in Wilder’s squad that Hogan believes is a factor in their positive results. The 26-year-old was also clear that the manager himself is central to the team’s progress. Wilder’s ability to instil a hard-working, positive, competitive atmosphere in the squad, free of destructive egos, is obviously a quality being recognised and appreciated by the members of his team.
The Blades face a nervy few months, as the race for automatic promotion is likely to go down to the wire, with Norwich, Leeds United and West Brom also in the hunt.
The Sheffield United squad must stick with what’s worked for them so far this season and keep faith in Wilder’s approach in order to give themselves the best chance of achieving promotion this season.
