Sheff Utd 3-1 Sheff Wed
Blades players celebrate their third goal

Sheffield United continued their recent good form, coming from a goal down to beat city rivals Sheffield Wednesday and stretch their unbeaten run to 15 games.

United are now just three points behind second-placed Leicester City in their chase for an automatic promotion place.

After a scoreless first half, Wednesday made the breakthrough against the run of play just 90 seconds after the break.

Wednesday keeper Kevin Pressman had been on top form in the first half to deny Dean Windass, Peter Ndlovu and Steve Kabba.

And the visitors took the lead when Alan Quinn broke through the United defence and kept his cool to shoot past goalkeeper Paddy Kenny.

But two goals in the space of four minutes turned the game United's way.

First Steve Kabba levelled it on 62 minutes and then on 65 minutes a stunning 20-yard volley by Michael Brown flew into the net, giving Wednesday keeper Kevin Pressman no chance.

Wayne Allison made the points safe with 12 minutes to go, firing home from close range after a superb run and cross from Kabba.


Sheff Utd: Kenny, Jagielka, Murphy, Page, Quinn, Brown, McCall, Tonge, Ndlovu, Windass, Kabba. Subs: Montgomery, Peschisolido, Allison, Mooney, de Vogt.

Sheff Wed: Pressman, Geary, Maddix, Monk, Westwood, Johnston, Powell, Robinson, Quinn, Di Piedi, Kuqi. Subs: Haslam, Knight, Green, Crane, Evans.

Referee: R Styles (Hampshire)
