The Blades lost out on the second automatic promotion spot to Sheffield Wednesday on the final day, but finished nine points ahead of fourth-placed Huddersfield and 17 better off than play-off semi-final opponents Stevenage.

"We got 90 points and scored an awful lot of goals, but unfortunately that wasn't enough and now we face Stevenage," Simonsen told the club's official website.

"We believe we're the best team in the play-offs and the league table reflects that, but only we can make sure the best team gets promoted at Wembley."

He added: "We said that we would be willing to fight through the play-offs and it's good that we have had this to fall back on.

"Because of missing out on automatic promotion, having led for so long, means we are doubly determined to be successful via the play-offs."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
