Billy Sharp may have scored two goals in Sheffield United’s 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park but it’s his all-round play that had manager Chris Wilder praising the skipper.

Sharp’s brace took the 32-year-old up to eight for the season and made it four in the last three games.

"He (Sharp) is getting himself in the goals, his general all-round play is good, his link-up play is the best it's been at this football club and he does what he does best, which is score,” said Wilder.

“It's great movement and it's fantastic for the skipper to score two.”

On the game, Wilder added: "We've had to work extremely hard, had to do a lot of good things right tonight. It's a difficult place to come, they have a great home record.

"The skipper has got two and we've controlled a lot of the game but I thought the way we dealt with (Bradley) Dack and (danny) Graham is a really pleasing aspect of our game.

"It's a tough place to come but we needed to keep playing the way we play. We talked at half-time about a little bit of quality around the final third. We got into some great positions first half without finding that last little bit, and we did in the second half."
