Warnock, 57 turned down an offer which would have seen him managing Portsmouth last December. But he stuck with the Blades and now sees them in second spot and seven points ahead of third placed Watford before this weekends fixtures.

Despite a somewhat lack of fatigue in recent games the Blades still look good for promotion and looks as though the Blades board are to offer Wanock a job for life at Bramall Lane; "When the time comes that Neil retires we have to find a way to use his success and experience." Said McCabe.

Meanwhile, Warnock has called on the club's fans to back his players ahead of Friday's visit of bottom side Crewe as the Blades look to improve on a recent run of one win in five outings.

"During these final five home fixtures I think that whatever deficiencies fans believe they see in our team should be instantly forgotten," he said.

"When a player makes a bad pass our fans should react in the opposite way and give that player even more encouragement to try and help him overcome any anxiety he might feel."
