Sheffield United’s march towards promotion continued yesterday as they saw off Rotherham United 2-0 at Bramall Lane.
The Blades were good value for the win which saw them keep pace with Leeds and Norwich at the top of the Championship table, as goals from Jack O’Connell and Mark Duffy saw off Paul Warne’s men.
In an XI which boasted a couple of changes from their last game with Sheffield Wednesday, one of the players granted a rare start was January signing Scott Hogan, who put in a decent performance in place of Billy Sharp yesterday.
And while the goal didn’t quite come for Hogan, he is clearly enjoying his time with the club, as he took to Twitter with an optimistic tweet following the game.

Hogan will be keen to get among the goals so he can truly feel like he is playing his part in the Blades’ promotion run, and if he can indeed discover the form he showed at Brentford a few seasons back, then United will have a top Championship player on their hands.
His performance was impressive in the main though despite not hitting the back of the net, and we took a look at just what Blades fans had to say in response to Hogan’s showing…
Brilliant work rate and effort ⚔️⚔️⚔️
