Sheffield United defender, Chris Basham, has insisted nobody has their head down in the dressing room as he issued a positive rallying cry following the defeat at West Brom.

Basham, who has become a stalwart of the club and is one of the first names on the teamsheet, fronted up for media duties following the loss.

But rather than be downbeat and upset about another Premier League defeat, Basham delivered a positive statement of intent and believes fine margins are costing United dearly.

“The lads are disappointed but we’re men in there and we hold our hands up and hopefully these chances come again” Basham said.

“We’re all very confident. We went out today and produced without getting a result. Fine margins in football, like the manager says.

We need to make sure we have a good week. No one has their heads down. The lads in the dressing room are all together, there’s nobody stepping out of line or doesn’t want to be together.”

Basham’s words come as United are now ten games without a win this season, with the only point of the campaign coming at home against Fulham.

Positive words but a win is so important now

We love that Basham has come out in bullish fashion here and he’s clearly not too upset with what the Blades are producing in general.

It’s also nice to hear that everyone is pulling in the same direction and, in fairness, that was clear to see last night with the efforts put in.

Basham is going to be front and central to us getting going. Not only because of how important he is to the team, but his experience and knowledge should help the young players in the squad.

Next weekend is another chance back at Bramall Lane and United will hope to banish the demons of last season against a very impressive Leicester side.
