and United come from behind to take all three points against the Cherries at Bramall Lane. It wasn't pretty at times, especially in the first half, but United got the job done - with John Lundstram coming off the bench to score a timely winner after losing his place to Sander Berge
And it's John Lundstram who gets it, finishing calmly six yards out after Lys Mousset had unselfishly squared the ball into his path! Five minutes to go here and United lead 2-1!
Here's that save from Deano
for the Blades as Baldock gets in behind the Cherries defence and crosses for mcBurnie, he feeds Mousset but his shot is blocked before Bournemouth break and Henderson is forced to punch clear under pressure from Wilson
sees Lys Mousset replace Billy Sharp, who gets a standing ovation from the home fans
from Dean Henderson as he palms away Fraser's well-struck effort which was bound for the top corner... and a strong hand sends it away from the players waiting for a tap-in, too. One of the best this season, for me, that
Great run from McBurnie
sees him try and cross for Sharp, but Ake cut it out before Baldock was penalised for a drag-back on Fraser
Ake shoots on
the volley after a corner was cleared into his path, but it goes wide as United make their first change of the game, replacing Sander Berge with John Lundstram
has a go from long range after cutting inside John Fleck, he lets fly on his left foot but it flies over Henderson's goal
