SHARP BY NAME AS BILLY ADDS A DOU­BLE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

BILLY Sharp took his tally for the sea­son to 26 goals as Sh­effield United raced eight points clear at the top with a 3-2 win at Ox­ford. The U’s led 1-0 at the break through Chey Dunk­ley, but the Blades roared back as cap­tain Sharp struck twice, one from the spot, and Kieron Free­man once be­fore sub Toni Martinez pulled a goal back at the death. Third-placed Scunthorpe’s poor re­cent run con­tin­ued as they were beaten 2-1 at Charl­ton. Skip­per John­nie Jack­son gave Charl­ton the lead, but the Iron looked to have earned a point when Kevin van Veen struck in the 75th minute. How­ever, Tony Watt scored a last-minute penalty win­ner to earn the Addicks max­i­mum points. Wal­sall closed to within six points of the play-off places with a 1-0 vic­tory against rel­e­ga­tion-threat­ened Ch­ester­field, Scott Laird bag­ging a sec­ond half win­ner.
