In fairness not as far as the Sheffield United striker is concerned as Bill Sharp couldn’t have contributed much more to the season than he did could he having scored 21-goals after returning for his third spell at Bramall Lane.

Sharp is aware United have to improve the home form next time round under fellow Blades fan Chris Wilder as that shown at the Lane last season wasn’t anywhere near good enough under Nigel Adkins and a repeat wouldn’t be good enough for a promotion challenge.

Confidence at home will make all the difference if we’re to be successful with him telling the Sheffield Star.

‘Promotion-winning teams win their games at home, it`s as simple as that. It`s a simple formula; win your home games, and then go away from home and get what you can. When you`re confident at home, you come out and sometimes feel like you`re 1-0 up before the game has even kicked off.’

With us ‘very edgy’ the fact we went ahead sometimes helped to settle this but with United falling behind all too often it left the Blades chasing matches so this is a definite must to turn around.

Eight defeats at Bramall Lane was far too many and nowhere near good enough, which was a key factor behind United finishing in 11th in the end.

Given the squad in place a ‘frustrated’ Sharp knows the automatic promotion aim could have been secured with the play-offs the least of it but we got ‘nowhere near’ due to a lack of consistency.

He’s already looking forward to next season under Wilder though with him finishing by saying he’s positive about what he feels this will bring.

‘It was very frustrating. With the squad we have, we should have been going for automatic promotion and when that was taken away from us, we went for the play-offs but got nowhere near. We didn`t win enough games and couldn`t establish any consistency. But there`s a lot to look forward to with the new manager, and I`m sure the fans will be back to support us in numbers next season.’
