Blades Punish Wasteful Brighton to Seal Rare Win

Rock-bottom Sheffield United secured only their fifth Premier League win of the season as David McGoldrick’s first-half strike was enough to clinch a 1-0 victory over Brighton at Bramall Lane on Saturday Night Football.

The Blades’ fate was sealed last weekend when they were narrowly beaten by Wolves, but the hallmarks of their successful first season back in the top-flight were back on display during a resolute performance that ultimately came too late in their quest to beat the drop.

McGoldrick’s winning strike (19) was far from a thing of beauty as a series of attempted clearances and ricochets allowed the striker to shoot on the turn and wrong-foot goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.

Brighton, who remain in 16th place, were denied an equaliser upon VAR review when Jakub Moder found the net from an offside position as Graham Potter’s side missed the chance to go 10 points clear of the relegation zone.
