Blades win to soar above Eagles

Date published: Saturday 12th December 2009 5:37

Lee Williamson opened the scoring for the Blades in the 21st minute, although Palace felt that defender Claude Davis had managed to scramble the ball clear before it crossed the line.

United rarely looked like surrendering their advantage thereafter and added a second in stoppage time when Stephen Quinn finished coolly after being set up by Williamson.

The hosts will probably feel they should have wrapped up the points before Quinn’s late strike, with Ched Evans and Jamie Ward both guilty of wasteful finishing more than one occasion.

The victory lifted Kevin Blackwell’s side above the Eagles in the table and moved them to within touching distance of the play-off places.
