Sheffield United can recover - Danny Higginbotham

Sheffield United defender Danny Higginbotham is confident they can return to form after back-to-back home defeats.

The Blades were beaten 2-0 by Yeovil on Saturday, having lost their previous match at Bramall Lane to Hartlepool.

He told BBC Radio Sheffield: "We have to put Saturday's defeat to the back of our mind.

"In football you always have the chance to rectify things quickly and that's what we'll be looking to do."

The 34-year-old added: "We've had a blip but I think that everyone coming here treats this match as a cup final and that is something we have to deal with.

"We're still in a good position and if we can get a couple of wins we'll be right back up there."

Saturday's defeat saw the Blades slip to six points behind Tranmere and Doncaster Rovers in the automatic promotion places.

Danny Wilson's side, who have dropped to fourth in the table, visit play-off hopefuls Notts County on Saturday before hosting struggling Bury on Tuesday.
