Sheffield United striker James Beattie says Bryan Robson inspired the team to come from behind to win against Wolves on Saturday.
The Blades were a goal down at half-time, but scored three in the second period to beat Wolves 3-1 at Bramall Lane.
And despite netting his third and fourth goals of the season, Beattie says it was the boss who motivated them to the victory.
"Two more goals against Wolves doubles my tally so far, but it wasn't about just me," he told The Sun.
"The manager said a few choice words at half-time and everybody responded."
Beattie also says he understands that his £4million price-tag, following a summer move to Bramall Lane, does not guarantee him a place in the starting line-up.
"It's down to the gaffer who he selects. I intend to take nothing for granted and I'm sure the same goes for all the other lads.
"Even though I've dropped down into the Championship for the moment, it's about being happy in my work."
