At Bramall Lane

Attendance: 18,276 including 631 visiting supporters

 

Despite a positive performance at Bramall Lane in which Vale had more than their share of play, they returned home with nothing to show for their efforts after the home side scored the only goal of the game early in the second half. Vale had looked good value for at least a point, if not more when they two sides went in level at the interval, but a superb volley five minutes into the second half by Billy Sharp denied Vale the reward their play had warranted. A late Vale rally, when they had the home side pinned deep inside their own half produced nothing and it was Sheffield United supporters who were celebrating after the final whistle.
