Sheffield United missed out on a top six finish but secure tenth spot with a 3-2 win over Bristol City yesterday.
Chris Wilder’s men have been in excellent form for much of the campaign, and despite the disappointment of their form since Xmas after an electric start, the club will be pleased with their efforts and finishing position in the table.
One of the key points what derailed United’s season was the injury to influential midfielder Paul Coutts, and many Blades fans feel his loss has cost them plenty of momentum and ultimately, results.
However, one of the club’s January signings, Lee Evans, has stepped up to the plate somewhat for the Blades in Coutts’ absence, becoming a key figure in the middle of the park for Wilder’s team.
Evans took to Twitter following yesterdays season ending game at Ashton Gate to pass on his thoughts and thanks to the fans.
Nice to finish the season off with the 3 points today! Thanks to all the fans for your amazing support throughout the season! Now it’s time to rest up and go again next season ???????????????? pic.twitter.com/5FxEsaNCpl
