Sheffield United continued their impressive recent run as they beat Derby County 1-0 at Bramall Lane.
It was a tough afternoon for the Blades, who were playing against ten men for the final half hour after Kelle Roos was sent off. Despite that, they needed a 90th minute penalty from Billy Sharp to seal the points.
Whilst the striker took the plaudits for holding his nerve late on, Ben Davies was impressive at the back for the Yorkshire side.
The centre-back joined from Liverpool in the summer window but he has had a stop-start beginning to his Blades career. However, the 26-year-old has now played in successive league games and he helped the team to a first home clean sheet yesterday.
Are these 22 Sheffield United stats real or fake?
As well as dealing with the Rams strikers, Davies was composed in possession and commanding in the way he played.
And, it’s fair to say he made a positive impression with the support. Here we look at some of their reaction to his display from Twitter…
Quality best game by far.

Read things early, held the line well when required, dropped off and swept up when necessary. Top performance. Such a safety net held alongside all others that have tried to replace JOC 👏🏻 https://t.co/z7yIFvVTBr
