Sheff Utd   0 - 1   Derby

Highlights - Sheffield United 0-1 Derby

Sheffield United 0-1 Derby

Theo Robinson grabbed his first Derby goal as the Rams beat fellow strugglers Sheffield United to end a miserable nine-game winless run.

The Blades twice went close early on but John Brayford cleared a Neil Collins header off the line and Michael Doyle's header flew over.

Derby led against the run of play on 27 minutes through Robinson's tap-in.

And although United created the clearer chances, they were wasteful and have now slipped to six points from safety.

The results means Blades boss Micky Adams is still searching for a first win after 12 games in charge.

That victory looked like coming in midweek but they surrendered a two-goal lead against Scunthorpe.

However, despite that confidence-sapping loss, the hosts gave every indication a win was finally coming after a bright start.

Brayford did superbly to nod Collins' goal-bound header off the line and Doyle headed over from six yards following Bjorn Helge Riise's 18th-minute corner.

The Rams went ahead when Daniel Ayala's left-wing cross was not properly cleared and it fell to Robinson who - four days after joining the Rams on loan from Millwall - tapped the ball home from six yards.

Chris Porter went close to doubling the lead but his deflected 20-yard strike went just wide of Steve Simonsen's post.

Blades leading scorer Ched Evans should have equalised but he shot over from 12 yards and then fired a 43rd-minute effort straight at goalkeeper Frank Fielding.

Opportunities continued to arrive for the home side after the interval but their possession and dominance failed to be rewarded.

Riise stung the hands of Fielding 20 seconds after the restart with a fierce drive and Lee Williamson headed a Riise corner over the bar

Richard Cresswell then missed United's best chance of the game in the 49th minute, when he headed Nyron Nosworthy's cross over the bar when well placed.

Derby did have chances, most notably Robinson's long-range effort which Simonsen did well to divert round the post.

The Blades were still on top, and Matthew Lowton, Evans and Riise all went close late on.

But the Rams withstood the late pressure to secure the three points.
