The Blades came from a goal down at half-time to see off the Shakers - managed by former boss Kevin Blackwell - 3-1 at Gigg Lane on Saturday thanks to goals from Jasper Johns, Jamie Murphy and Stephen McGinn.

"There are a lot of positives, there are areas to work but I am generally happy with what has gone on," Weir told the club's official website.

"We are getting our ideas across of how we want them to play and the greatest thing is that the lads are buying into what we are trying to do.

"The signs are good for us but there is a long way to go."
