Promotion is bottom line for Wilson

17 October 2012

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson has played down his impressive record while in charge at Bramall Lane and said he will be judged by fans at the end of the season.

Former Sheffield Wednesday boss Wilson has lost only 12 of his 71 games since being installed as a controversial replacement for Micky Adams in May 2011, but following defeat in the npower League One play-off final last season knows success will be gauged on whether or not he can steer them to promotion.

"All you want is consistency and that's what we're looking for," Wilson said. "We've been pretty consistent during the time we've been here and that's down to the application of the players and that's what it's all about.

"We lost a few players in the summer and it's always difficult to replace the quality they had, but the ones who have come in have done really well and the season is only just up and running, so we hope they will get better as they go along.

"It's always nice to have a record as good as that, but the bottom line is we'll be judged on where we finish at the end of the season.

"I said when I came in it was a great club to come and manage and I'd have been foolish to turn it down and that has only been endorsed as we've gone along. It's a terrific club and should we get success at the end of the season this place could really take off."
