SHEFFIELD UNITED boss, Chris Wilder, said his side were long overdue a last-minute winner after Billy Sharp’s stoppage time strike gave the Blades a 2-1 win over Norwich.
United looked destined to have only secured a point after Jordan Rhodes cancelled out John Egan’s early opener, but Sharp had other ideas, tapping home after David McGoldrick helped on a cross from Chris Basham.
And Wilder felt it was nothing less than what his side deserved as they claimed their first league win at Bramall Lane.
He said: “It’s about time we got a last minute winner. There’s been some cruel games here at Bramall Lane.
“I thought the best chances fell our way.
“There’s nothing better than a last minute winner.
“It’s my club, my team, my players and it’s been a tough couple of weeks.”
The Blades suffered an opening day defeat to newly-relegated Swansea on the opening day of the season before being torn apart away from home at Middlesbrough.
But a 2-1 win at QPR and then a narrow penalty-shootout defeat to Hull in the League Cup has given the Blades confidence to push on.
Billy Sharp’s third goal in as many games is certainly cause for celebration and, as Wilder says, it’s a testament to his character and leadership.
“Billy’s been fantastic in the changing room when he’s not played and when he has.
“It was a tight game but the right result.”
