Sharp was the hero from the spot once more for the Blades this season, as he converted a penalty to secure a 1-0 victory over Championship side Bristol City.

That sealed a second successive place in the last eight of the FA Cup for United, and skipper Sharp said: "I'm delighted we're into the next round.

"Job done as far as we're concerned. We knew it'd be a tough game but the goal eventually came and delighted with the clean sheet as well.

"I felt we were comfortable, we had a lot of the ball and felt we could be a bit better in the final third. We had a few opportunities in the first half and the second as well.

"I'm delighted to get the goal and get us through to the next round."
