Wilson takes focus off Rhodes

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson has warned his team there is much more to Huddersfield than their 40-goal striker Jordan Rhodes.

Rhodes (right): Not Terriers' only threat

The Blades face the Terriers in Saturday's Championship play-off final and Rhodes has been in record-breaking form this season. The forward is the leading scorer in English football, but Wilson does not buy into the theory that you only have to keep him quiet to get the better of Simon Grayson's side.

"It's a nip-and-tuck game," Wilson said. "There's two good teams going into a game which either one could win if I'm perfectly honest.

"You can't look beyond him (Rhodes), with 40 goals you'd be foolish to think otherwise, but they've got other matchwinners in their side and we're not daft enough to think we only have to wrap up one player.

"They're a good side. They've got lots of attributes to their team. They've got good strength, good discipline, they've got goalscorers in other departments, there are threats coming from all over.

"We've got to defend well, but we did at their place and got a very good result. We kept a clean sheet and to keep Jordan quiet that day was a major effort from everybody and we're going to have to have the same."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
