Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has promised that his high-flying Blades will ‘keep going for it’ – starting with Ipswich Town’s visit today.

And Wilder vowed that his squad won’t be taking their foot off the pedal as the Blues come to town.

He told the Sheffield Star: “We’ll keep going for it.
