Teemu Tainio his return to the fold coincides with a return to winning ways at Bramall Lane on Saturday.The midfielder has been absent for four games suffering with a throat infection, but he is fit to take on Sheffield United - a fixture the Finn believes the team must take reward from after not taking maxiumum points since Boxing Day.

"It will be hard game because they desperately need the points as well," reasoned Teemu. "If we want to do something this season we have to start winning these games. This can be a first step and if we play well as a team we can get something good out of this game.

"They are a hard team to beat, they play with a big heart and fight for every ball. We have to be ready for the battle and then show some technical skill. We haven't shown enough accuracy in what we've produced recently, we need to be more compact and make it more difficult for teams to score against us.

"Our confidence is still there, but we need to get winning again and picking up the points. Saturday is an important game for us."
