Billy Sharp volleys home against Hull

Sharp's effort wasn't enough to keep Sheffield United in the competition - they eventually lost on penalties to Yorkshire rivals Hull City at Bramall Lane - but showed his technical quality, latching onto a sublime cross from John Fleck.

"It's always nice to score," Sharp said ahead of tomorrow's Championship clash against Norwich at Bramall Lane.

"Flecky has got that in his locker - he said to me that he didn't know I was there, but just had a feeling. I didn't have a lot of time to think about it, and just tried to keep it on target.

"I managed to catch it sweetly and was happy to see it go in.

"I feel good, and hopefully I can keep that going."
