Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell believes his players would ``right a wrong'' if they can secure promotion back to the Barclays Premier League after a 2-1 aggregate victory over Preston in their Coca-Cola Championship play-off semi-final.
Blades midfielder Greg Halford rose highest on the hour-mark to head home Kyle Walker's superb cross and settle a nerve-jangling second leg 1-0 in the Blades' favour.
Blackwell said: ``A lot of people have contacted the club in the last few days and there have been a lot of emails, because they feel it would right a wrong.
The Carlos Tevez affair threatened to rip the heart and soul out of the club in 2007, but the anger and sense of injustice were momentarily forgotten at the final whistle when ecstatic Blades fans in a crowd of 26,354 spilled on to the pitch.
``It's been sorted out, but it's still festering among football people who feel things weren't right.
``I don't think that sits well with people in English football and most of the fair-minded supporters, so if we can get that right it would go a long way to lancing the boil totally.''
There had been little to separate the two sides in Friday night's 1-1 first-leg draw at Deepdale, but this time the Blades seized the initiative with a high-octane display that Preston manager Alan Irvine conceded his side could not live with.
Blackwell added: ``We were magnificent. Every aspect of our play was first class, the way we moved the ball, the tempo, the passion, the commitment, the organisation.
``It was a terrific team performance and I thought we thoroughly deserved victory.''
