Billy Sharp believes Sheffield United can get out of trouble after winning the first Premier League of the season on Tuesday.
Sharp scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot when the Blades defeated Newcastle United on Bramhall Lane for five points for the season.
The result left Chris Wilder's side nine points behind safety, but Sharp has insisted that the team avoid relegation this season.
“It's a great relief, I'm so happy for the boys, He told Sky Sports . “It was important that we win soon. It was scratchy at times, but I thought we were brilliant in the first half.
“We got the luck we deserved and we saw through it.
“I thought we played with a lot of confidence and this win can give us more faith. Everyone wrote us off – the pressure is gone.
"We haven't had a great time in the last few months but we have to hold our heads up now. We're good enough to do it.
" He touched it with his hand – I nudged him. The referee made the decision. I love scoring goals for Sheffield United. “
SL View – A Big Order for the Blades
The result ended a record run of 20 league games without a win for the Blades and it will undoubtedly be a relief for everyone associated with the club are.
They showed a lot of determination against a poor Newcastle side and that spirit should help them in the second half of the season.
However, an upcoming schedule list from Tottenham Hotspur (H), Manchester United (A) and Manchester City (A) could keep you safe by the end of the month.
With 20 games left to play, it would be stupid to write off the blades. But the task they face may prove to be beyond them.
