Derby   0 - 1   Sheff Utd

Derby 0-1 Sheff Utd

Derby 0-1 Sheff Utd

Richard Cresswell's first-half strike earned Sheffield United a second successive league win of the season.

Blades striker Cresswell neatly converted Jean Calve's cross from close range in the 15th minute for his first goal of the campaign.

Ched Evans and Nick Montgomery then spurned chances to add to the lead as the visitors dominated possession.

And despite Kris Commons coming close to equalising, Nigel Clough's side fell to their third defeat in five matches.

Derby, without a win since their triumph at Leeds on the opening day of the season, started well enough, but it was the Blades who carved out the better chances.

Evans' low left-footed shot was parried by Derby goalkeeper Stephen Bywater and summer signing Johnny Ertl pulled his effort wide moments later.

And United, unchanged after clinching their first win of the season under boss Gary Speed against Preston two weeks ago, again went close through Evans before breaking finally the deadlock.

French defender Calve swept over a cross from the right into the path of Cresswell, who made no mistake from six yards.

Cresswell lashed a shot over after the break with Montgomery dragging another wide before Steve Simonsen held a raking 20-yard shot from Commons.

And it was Cresswell who went close to adding a second in the five minutes of time added on when he rifled a 20-yard effort over the crossbar.
