Sheffield United right-back Kieron Freeman has insisted that Sheffield United are only going to get better and better, after their blistering start to their Championship campaign.
The club are the early pace setters in the division, having picked up eight wins from 12 games, and sit top of the table with 25 points.
The Blades won the League One title in 2016-17, and have had one season to accumulate to life in the second tier, but now Freeman believes their experience in the division will help them.
“We’re more experienced now, having had a full season in the Championship and we know every game in this division is a tough game.’’ He told his clubs official website.
“We’re growing as a team and we just have to keep improving individually and collectively, to get better and better.
The defender has also stated that the development of the side over a number of years gives the club an advantage, since the players understand the system in place.
“We’ve played our system for a long time now, we know how to play against and we also back ourselves against anyone who come and match us up, it almost suits us.”
“We know that formation better than most teams in the league, but when we’re at our best I’d back us against anyone to be honest.”
However, the former Derby defender knows the fixture against his former club this weekend will be no easy task.
“Derby are doing well, but so are we, it will be a really good game I would imagine.’’ He added.
“My family are still season tickets holders at the City Ground, so I still keep an eye out for Forest’s results, but slowly they are turning into Blades!”
