Sheffield United ground out a hugely important win at Bramall Lane this afternoon as the Blades ran out 2-1 winners against visitors Leeds United.
United had Billy Sharp to thank for the victory with the Blades skipper bagging a stunner in the first half, followed up by a late penalty to hand the home side the three points and a crucial victory in their race for the Championship playoff places.
The United skipper had been left out over the previous run of fixtures and was obviously keen to make his mark, and his first goal in the opening two minutes was a stunning volley, as he smashed in from Mark Duffy’s deflected cross to send Bramall Lane wild.
The goal, of course, gave Blades fans plenty to talk about on social media, and a fair few fans took the time out to give their thoughts on the goal and the performance of Sharp in general.
We’ve taken a closer look at how the Blades fans reacted…
What a start welcome back ⚽????
