The forward rounded off the scoring for the Blades with a wonderful flicked volley past Joe Lumley in the Boro goal, putting the gloss on a memorable night for United as they hammered old boss Chris Wilder’s side and moved fifth in the Championship table.

Gibbs-White was in inspired form all evening, setting up Billy Sharp’s earlier goal to put the Blades 2-0 up after Sander Berge had smashed home the opener from close range.

Defender Jack Robinson got in the act with a composed volley on his right foot – a strike Sharp himself would have been proud of – before Boro got on the scoresheet themselves through Folarin Balogun, after Wes Foderingham’s mistake.

Wilder admitted afterwards that Sharp and Gibbs-White “destroyed” Boro’s defence, with the United midfield also dominating their opponents.
