Wilson pledges Blades will bounce back af­ter away run is ended

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - Sport football -

BLADES chief Danny Wilson re­fused to be down­cast af­ter his side suf­fered their first away de­feat of the sea­son

“It was a fan­tas­tic per­for­mance, there’s only one thing we can say and that’s we didn’t put a ball in the net,” said Wilson, whose side re­main sec­ond.

“They’ll say they de­fended well, but I think they had a bit of luck on their side as well.

“We com­pletely dom­i­nated from start to fin­ish, so we’re go­ing to be dis­ap­pointed of course. But we’ll take the frus­tra­tions out next week against Charl­ton.”

Stu­art Beavon gave Wy­combe their first vic­tory in six league games.

Wy­combe had not scored in the league since Au­gust 16 but Beavon ended that run with a well-struck ef­fort from 15 yards af­ter Harry Maguire’s mis­take.

Lee Wil­liamson should have turned the screw on Wy­combe in the 20th minute but he headed over a cross from Ched Evans de­spite be­ing un­marked.

Wil­liamson also struck a low shot just past the foot of the post af­ter Beavon’s strike.

Four min­utes af­ter the restart, only a good save from Steve Si­mon­sen at the foot of his near post stopped Har­ris from dou­bling Wy­combe’s lead.

In the 54th minute, Evans un­leashed a shot which beat Bull but bounced back off the wood­work,

Joel Grant, who had been booked be­fore the break, drew a good stop from Si­mon­sen be­fore Bull did well to smother Evans’s at­tempt from point-blank range.

Wilson made two changes in the 67th and 69th min­utes with JeanFran­cois and Cress­well com­ing on for Wil­liams and Porter.

Neil Collins had an ef­fort hacked off the line as United started to prise apart Wy­combe’s rear­guard but the de­fender also had to clear off the line at the other end. Wy­combe: Bull, Foster, San­dell, John­son, Tun­ni­cliffe, Lewis, Hard­ing, Don­nelly (Bloom­field 85), Grant (Halls 87), Har­ris (Strevens 76), Beavon. Unused sub­sti­tutes: Mc­Coy, Benyon.
