Shrewsbury Town 0
As the teams took the field for the second half the rain came down hard, the gloomy Sheffield weather continued its month long trend, the wind whistled around the ground and the game was back under way. McGinn was replaced with cup hero Shaun Miller, who we are all hoping has a new found confidence. The pace continued to be slow as United dictated the tempo, trying to find time on the ball to gather back energy that was quickly escaping them. The patient build up led to a few chances one of the more notable was Flynn firing a shot over the bar. Shrewsbury did knock at the door a few times but they were limited to hopeful efforts mostly going well wide or over the bar, the closest they came saw Taylor slice an attempt wide. Porter replaced Conor Coady late on and had his goal ruled out for offside, and rightly so. A professional second half performance saw the final whistle give United their victory and a good solid defensive display. As we look to the next game, a Wednesday night visit from table toppers Brentford we know our work is cut out for us, but lets hope we can again show some classic Sheffield Steel and carry forward our momentum.
