Blades look for immediate reaction
Sheffield United were the victims of a first league win in nearly a year for Derby County on Saturday and will be looking to make amends against the Sky Blues on Tuesday night.
'Sometimes these things happen, ask anyone involved in this business, and it's difficult to explain why,' manager Kevin Blackwell told the Sheffield Star.
'Yes, a couple of the lads were below what we wanted, but I'm not going to get carried away.
'The good thing about this competition is that you immediately get a chance to set the record straight and that's what we've got to do now.'
