Ipswich Town became the latest side to fall at Sheffield United and there was an unusual name on the scoresheet.

Billy Sharp may have been back in the line-up alongside in-form Leon Clarke but it was central defender Chris Basham who turned out to be the goalscoring hero on the day.

Basham's last goal came in a 6-0 battering of Leyton Orient in the FA Cup in November, but his last league goal was on October 22 in the Blades dramatic 3-3 draw with Bradford City.

Boss Chris Wilder said: "I can't remember the last time Chris Basham scored but he's played a part in about 140 points in the last two years so that's not bad."

The win took United to just a goal off second placed Cardiff City, with top-of-the-table Wolves just two points in front.
