Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough was thrilled with his team after they swept aside struggling Scunthorpe United 4-0 to strengthen their grip on a Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off place.Jose Baxter scored twice from the penalty spot, either side of the break, with Jason Holt and Jamie Murphy also on target.
Clough said: "I thought we deserved it in all areas of the game. I thought we deserved our clean sheet and I thought we deserved our four goals.
"Some of the movement was good and our work-rate was certainly as good as it has always been.
"Hopefully things are just gelling. Half a dozen new players have come into the team and they're just starting to gel.
"We've still got work to do but it gives us a little bit of a cushion. We know that six points can soon be eroded if we don't keep winning games. Saturday now becomes another big game for us.
"We looked probably better balanced with [Ryan] Flynn out on the right and Murphy on the left. I thought the rotation of the five across the middle was very good.
"I thought Steven Davies was excellent again. He's not got a goal but we're not really bothered if he doesn't score because his all-round game, holding the ball up, is crucial to how we're playing."
