Paul Coutts receives treatment after a challenge from Abu Ogogo which saw the Shrewsbury Town player sent off

Shrewsbury Town went down to nine-men against Sheffield United after this brutal challenge from Abu Ogogo, which prompted Blades boss Chris Wilder top describe his players as 'a lucky boy'.

"For him to walk off the pitch today is a bonus from us," said Wilder. "Look at the state of the boy’s leg, that comes from a dangerous tackle. It’s sliced through his shin pad and he’s taken a big hit there."

United went on to win the game 2-1 after goals from Billy Sharp and Stefan Scougall.
