Sheffield United: Young striker on the verge of European breakthrough moment
and live on Freeview channel 276
Jebbison was introduced during the closing stages of the meeting with Carmine Nunziata’s side, after second-half strikes from Bristol City’s Alex Scott and Jarell Quansah of Liverpool cancelled-out Fabio Miretti’s penalty. Miretti, who is contracted to Juventus, has also been capped by his country at under-21 level.
After being drafted into the FA’s set-up, Jebbison became the youngster player to score on his full Premier League debut following his strike against Everton two seasons ago. United allowed him to join Burton Albion on loan at the beginning of last term in order to further his development.
Despite being pleased with progress under former Chelsea and Holland striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, now manager at the Pirelli Stadium, Jebbison was later recalled due to the injury crisis which threatened to derail United’s push for the Championship play-offs.
He made his 34th appearance of the campaign during the first leg of their ill-fated semi-final against Nottingham Forest.
