DANNY Wilson has sounded a warning to Sheffield United’s League One rivals: ‘We won’t be bullied out of the top two.’

United travel to MK Dons this weekend knowing that victory could guarantee promotion to the Championship next season.

Wilson’s side have blazed a trail to second in the table playing an attacking brand of football which has seen them score 20 goals in their last six games.

But, despite admitting that he “takes pride” from United’s reputation as the division’s great entertainers, the South Yorkshire club’s manager is adamant his team can combine silk with steel.

“We’ve got players who are known as being the gritty ones but all of the lads here can do that,” Wilson said. “They all work hard and can dig in. I think they’ve proved tthey can do both. You’ve got to.”

United have sold 5,600 tickets for Saturday’s trip to stadium:mk.

They entertain Stevenage at home later this month before travelling to Exeter City on May 5.

If United win in Buckinghamshire, they will be assured of a top-two finish should Carlisle beat third placed Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Wilson said: “The only thing we are concentrating on is trying to win the game. Nothing else.

“There’s a long way to go yet. Nothing’s definite.

“The situation hasn’t changed.”
