The Blades had led through Cameron Archer before the hammer blow of Jean-Ricner Bellegarde’s 89th-minute equaliser. But the Blades kept believing and after Fabio Silva was punished for fouling George Baldock, Ollie Norwood stepped up to hammer home the winner from the spot in inury time.
Here’s how we rated United’s players on an afternoon to savour at Bramall Lane....
1. Wes Foderingham 6.5
For all Wolves’ possession early on he was a relative bystander in terms of saves, although he had to be alert to tip over Cunha’s well-struck shot in the first half. Some of his distribution left a little to be desired before he was beaten by the late blow of Wolves’ equaliser, unable to keep it out after it took a nick off Baldock
2. Jayden Bogle 7.5
Will have felt great pressure for his place with Baldock back, and after his difficult afternoon at Arsenal last weekend, but was given the chance to play alongside him and rose to the challenge well. Had a couple of nervy moments on the ball but also some really dangerous ones when he got going down the right, also flying into an excellent commanding challenge with the Blades leading 1-0
3. George Baldock 8
Lined up on the right of United’s back three on his return from injury and a committed tackle, which took man rather than ball, about 50 seconds into the game summed up United’s tenacious start. United have really missed his intensity down the right and he was typically industrious, with a fair dose of invention when the chance came to attack down the right too. Defensively solid too, especially when walking the tightrope of an early booking for a ‘foul’ on Kalajdzic. Then won the penalty which won the game
4. Auston Trusty 7
Will have felt more scrutiny and eyes on him after his own troubles at the Emirates last weekend but barely put a foot wrong here, save for a couple of wayward crosses that left him holding his head in his hands in frustration. Battled through cramp around the hour mark and got his head to a late corner but couldn’t find the target, much to his amazement
