Huddersfield Town Manager Neil Warnock spoke to the press ahead of tomorrow’s penultimate home Sky Bet Championship fixture against Sheffield United.

Discussing his team and the test to come from the already automatically promoted side, Warnock said:

"I think everybody gets nervous at this stage of the season, it's only natural - if you're then there might be something wrong with you.

"I can't any more from the boys than I am already. It's been quite a miraculous turnaround really.

"The lads are in really good spirits, we've been playing some really good football in the past few games.

"Sheffield United are a good team, Paul Heckingbottom hasn't good enough credit really. They appointed Stuart McCall at the right time too.

"It'd be the biggest achievement of my career if we could finish the job and stay up. We were seven adrift with nine of the top 10 to play.

"Ronnie came with me, the staff have mucked in with us and the squad have reacted. We're not getting too carried away though.

"I'm really pleased with how the lads have responded, and I've been proud of them on several occasions this season.

"We've had lads like Ruffels and Koroma blossom, REG has done well and even young Kian came on and scored at Watford too when he had the chance.

"This situation makes for a good atmosphere. For 2,000 fans to travel to Cardiff at noon on a Sunday, I was quite amazed really.

"I don't think some Premier League sides had that kind of support this weekend!

"We're more of a team now, more of a threat, as a group we're working hard for each other.

"As a group the lads have grown up. We were all over the shop really when I first came in, but the lads listened and anywhere we play now we have a chance of winning.

"I want us to try and win this game if I'm honest, that's what I've told the lads, even against a good Sheffield United side.

"Everybody wants to be involved now, but you have to look around and see if anyone needs a rest, for example. But nothing else changes.

"Training has been good again today, it's been getting better with each week. The team has been getting better with each week too.

"We're taking one at a time. We'll treat it as a normal game, we've got to try and win it. That's all we're concentrating on."
