U23s: Sheffield United preview

3 February 2019

David Lee’s Under-23s will take on their Sheffield United counterparts on Monday afternoon in the Professional Development League at Stocksbridge Park Steels, KO 2pm.

Wanderers will be looking to bounce back from their 2-1 loss at home to Crewe Alexandra last Monday as they arrive at Sheffield sitting fourth in the league, two places above their latest opponents.

The Whites currently lie eight points behind leaders Leeds United after 10 wins, two draws and seven losses this season, but could jump to up second place with a win, having a game in hand over Burnley and Birmingham U23s.

The young Blades meanwhile are coming off the back of two straight defeats, including a 3-0 thrashing away to Blackburn Rovers.

With 26 points on the board from a possible 57, Travis Binnion’s side will also be hungry to bounce back to winning ways when they welcome the Trotters.

A report of the match will be on bwfc.co.uk following the final result.

Report: Sheffield United U23s 4-0 Bolton Wanderers U23s

5 February 2019

Wanderers U23s suffered a 4-0 defeat away at their Sheffield United counterparts in the Professional Development League on Monday afternoon.

Six minutes into the game, Oli Greaves slotted the ball past James Aspinall from a corner, after the goalkeeper denied the striker on the attack that led to the set-piece.

Lewis Doyle went close with a 20 yard curling effort soon after, with United's goalkeeper saving well.

A mix-up at the back for the Whites allowed Conor Washington to step past his man and find the back of the net with his left foot.

It became three on the half hour mark, as Greaves cut inside from the right flank and score his second of the game.

Wanderers began the second half better, with a lot more possession in the early goings but still struggling to create clear cut chances.

Again, Doyle went close with a shot that narrowly went past the Blades' post.

However with 17 minutes to go in the second period, Sheffield found their fourth through Reece York.

Sam Ackroyd managed to set up York, who dispatched the ball past Aspinall inot the goal.

Wanderers U23s: Aspinall, Hartshorne, Brockbank, Zouma, Boon (Darcy 45), Earing Jones 60), Broughton, Doyle, Navarro (White 45), Tanimowo, Hall.

Unused substitutes: Duke-McKenna, B.Williams.
