Sheffield United 0-1 Newcastle United

Paul Heckingbottom was not happy with the officials last week…

He might have a problem again. It looked to hit a hand, and that probably narrowly kept the ball in play, before it was played across by Anthony Gordon to Longstaff to bury it for Newcastle’s 1-0 lead.

Goal given – right on the line

GOAL: Longstaff 21′

Sheffield United players are convinced the ball was out in the build-up…

Souza blisters a shot straight at Pope

The Blades are definitely going for this one. Souza blasts a shot from about 25 yards out, which stings the hands of Pope, but no real trouble for the Magpies yet.

How will the absence of Barnes change things?

It’s been pretty even, and the Blades have had their chances both before and after Barnes was injured, but I wonder how much things will change as the game progresses.

Blades have another chance

Ball falls to Thomas at the far post, an excellent ball, but he’s in an awkward position, and he shoots it wide of the post. A big opportunity for the Blades there.

Anthony Gordon on for Barnes

Harvey Barnes is down receiving treatment

A brief breather for both sides as Barnes receives treatment. He’s on his feet now, trudging slowly off the pitch. Looks like a probable change required…

Bramall Lane rises to salute Maddy Cusack

The fans rise to applaud the memory of Sheffield United Women’s No. 8 Maddy Cusack.

Wilson chance

The ball is played to Newcastle’s No 9, but he’s unable to find a lot of space, and his shot from the edge of the box tests Foderingham, but not too much…

Battle in midfield

A lot of play in the middle of the park, Sheffield United playing it around, but they need to be careful, as the Magpies are eager to try and take the ball off them.

Sheffield United chance

The hosts have the first half-chance, Bogle playing the ball across, but Thomas is unable to control it efficiently, and it’s blocked and the danger is cleared.

We’re underway

Referee Stuart Attwell blows his whistle and we’re underway at Bramall Lane. Hosts in red and white stripes, Newcastle in their dark and bright change strip.

Beautifully observed, and we’re moments away now…

A moment of silence for Maddy Cusack

Newcastle enter final preparations

With four changes, as Newcastle fight on four fronts, how will Callum Wilson and the other incoming stars make a difference to the Magpies?

Tributes to Maddy Cusack

The hosts are holding a number of tributes to Maddy Cusack, who died this week at the age of 27. She adorns the cover of today’s match-day programme, and there are memorials in and around Bramall Lane today. The Blades will be deterined to turn their pain into a positive performance today.

State of play

After this afternoon’s 2pm games, Newcastle sit in 12th place on six points. Three points today would see them fly up the table to eighth place, above Manchester United.

For the Blades, they’re sitting in 18th place with one point, only ahead of fellow promoted sides Luton Town and Burnley on goal difference. A point today won’t see them catch Bournemouth on three points, but a win today and they’ll escape the drop zone…

Newcastle United team news

Following last week’s win against Brentford, and their draw in Milan on Tuesday, this is the team that has been selected as Newcastle United look to get three points in Sheffield this afternoon. There’s four changes from the draw at AC Milan, with Wilson, Anderson, Almiron and Barnes coming into the team.

Sheffield United team news

It’s been a tough week for Sheffield United, with the death of Maddy Cusack, a midfielder for the Women’s side, as well as working in marketing for the Men’s team.

They’re still looking for their first win since their promotion back to the Premier League, and this is the 11 Paul Heckingbottom has tasked with taking on the Magpies.
