Billy Sharp Sheff Utd v Bristol City

Billy Sharp scored from the penalty spot as Sheffield United made their dominance count by beating Bristol City 1-0 in the FA Cup fifth round.

The Blades dominated possession, but created few clear chances against an organised City side.

Jayden Bogle saw a shot clip the top of the crossbar but that was the closest they came to a goal and the first half ended 0-0 at Bramall Lane.

United continued their dominance in the second half and eventually got their goal through a Sharp spot-kick.

Centre-back Alfie Mawson was sent off in the process, with the ball striking him on the hand.

United now advance to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
