Enjoying a drink at the local Wetherspoon's may be a thing of the past for most footballers, but not for the Sheffield United squad.

Despite being spoilt for upmarket bars in Sheffield, the promotion chasing squad decided to go back to basics with a pint at Wetherspoons.

A number of star players including Billy Sharp, Jay O'Shea and Stefan Scougall were all spotted enjoying a pint at the cost-friendly bar on Wednesday.

The squad were out celebrating defender Jack O'Connell's 23rd birthday when they were spotted by Blades' fan John Downes.

The Blades are currently 13 points clear of third place Fleetwood Town with just six games left to play.

Although a number of empty pint glasses can be seen on the table, the squad will be firmly focussed on guaranteeing their promotion to the Championship before celebrations start in earnest.
