Sheffield United kicked off the month with a 2-1 defeat to Championship rivals AFC Bournemouth as they looked to make their way up the table in a bid for a return to the Premier League.

After the international break the Blades hoped to turn things around after two defeats previous and two late goals at Bramall Lane earned them the win against Stoke City.

The Potters took the lead shortly after half-time and it was looking likely to become a third consecutive loss for Slaviša Jokanović’s side until Lys Mousset and David McGoldrick scored with only ten minutes to go – with three minutes between the two.

Stoke were unable to fight back with what little time was left and the home team took the victory – leaving them in 13th in the Championship and five points off the top six.

Sheffield United will be hoping they can make the most of their impressive comeback as they host Millwall on Tuesday evening, before facing Barnsley and Blackpool in their remaining October fixtures.
