Micky Adams' Sheffield United visit Vicarage Road tomorrow looking to begin closing the eight point gap between themselves and safety.
Boyhood Blades fan Adams finally won his first match in charge of the Yorkshire side, 2-1 against Nottingham Forest, a first win in 12 attempts.
'It will be interesting to see how the lads respond and go about their business after Tuesday night because it has to be built upon. Breaking their duck should give them an element of confidence they have not had for some time.
'The manager and the rest of us, including Dave Bassett, all have different views on things and react in different ways so there is plenty of potential for 'good cop, back cop' approaches when getting messages across to players - we have a lot of experience.'
