SHEFFIELD United manager Danny Wilson does not fear a repeat of history when his team visit MK Dons tomorrow.

Karl Robinson’s side were the last club to beat United during 90 minutes when the two clubs clashed in Buckinghamshire seven months ago.

Twenty-four games later, they lock horns again at Stadium:mk but Wilson said: “The run doesn’t bring any pressure. It’s nice but there’s no pressure because our driving force isn’t preserving the run, it’s getting these points.

“What’s going to happen down there? I don’t know. But I’m not worried about it. MK will look at opening the pitch up and getting the ball down. The contrast in styles between them and our last opponents (Swindon) will be huge because they were very, very direct.

“Can we cope with that? The question you’ve also got to ask is, can they cope with us?”

Huddersfield Town posted a Football League record of 43 games unbeaten last term.

However, dismissing claims United have become obsessed with improving upon that figure, Wilson added: “Listen, we’ve had some wonderful players at this football club down the years., players of such quality that we’d love to have them now.

“We don’t talk about the run at all. In fact, I couldn’t tell you the number of games it has been (since a loss) because we focus on the next game, not ones that have gone by. But if the lads have done well they deserve recognition.”
