United, who trailed thanks to Kane Hemming's first goal, registered their first win of the season - and the first of the Chris Wilder era - thanks to second half goals from Billy Sharp and James Wilson.

And Blades assistant boss Knill, when asked what was said to United's players at half-time, revealed: "We told them they were playing well, and to keep going. We had great chances in the first half that we didn't take but if we kept believing, it would come.
