What the managers are saying

Chris Wilder (Sheffield United): “In a lot of ways we shouldn’t be anywhere near where we are, but we are, and I’d like to do even better.”

Frank Lampard (Derby County): “It is a game that we have absolute focus on. I’m confident because I believe in the players, but there is work to be done.

“We have to be careful, because there is a small gap opening up. If we have aspirations, we have to have a good Christmas period.”
