Blades have character - Blackwell

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell believes his side have turned a corner and restored their character after victory over Doncaster Rovers.

The Blades had endured a run of five games without a win but have responded impressively with successive victories over Watford and now Doncaster.

"I know this team has character," Blackwell told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"The last 15 days the lads have been out of character, but they've responded well in the last two games."

Meanwhile, Blackwell, like his Barnsley counterpart Simon Davey, refused to talk about the on-off deal for Tykes midfielder Brian Howard.

"I have no idea what is happening with Brian," said Blackwell.

"Everyone keeps talking about Brian Howard, but I just want to talk about the good performance from my team."
