Jamie helps Blades Ward off PNE

Date published: Monday 28th December 2009 5:35

The Blades were largely dominant throughout but could not make the vital breakthrough until the closing stages, when Ward’s 30-yard free-kick sailed into the net.

United began brightly and fashioned a decent opportunity in the 13th minute when Jordan Stewart crossed dangerously and Henri Camara arrived to rifle a left-footed shot over the bar from 12 yards out.

Moments later, Preston conjured their first goal threat when striker Jon Parkin was given the time and space to drill in a right-footed effort from 20 yards out.

Both sides wasted chances and the match looked destined to end all square until Ward hit a free-kick from 30 yards out which flew into the bottom corner of Andy Lonergan’s net.
