Football Scores: Sheffield United 2-0 Barnsley

Championship

Football Scores

Sheffield united pushed Barnsley to the bottom of the table as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Morgan Gibbs-White opened the scoring in the 54th minute before Sanden Berge doubled their advantage in the 54th minute. It was Berge’s third goal in four matches as manager Paul Heckingbottom made the one change from their draw against Blackpool. Conor Hourihane replaced Iliman Ndiaye.

Managers Reaction 

Sheffield United’s Paul Heckingbottom: “Half-time was about the mentality and not wasting all the hard work that we’ve done over the last few months and seizing the opportunity as well as demanding a quicker pace in everything we did. We did that from the first whistle second half. I thought Barnsley stayed with us for the first 10 minutes, but after the goal, we took control of the game. We work hard at set plays. I expect quality and that’s what he (Hourihane) showed. It was a big moment in the game. Of course, we want to keep this run going and the clean sheets at home and being difficult to play against, but it takes a lot.”

Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “We had the game exactly where we wanted it in the first half and for the beginning of the second half up until they got a free-kick which they scored from. The first thing I said before going back out to the second half was that they are quick with their set-pieces. After the goal I was disappointed with our reaction, you are going to suffer but you have to be good at suffering. This is normal for this not to be our strength because we’re a young team, but we need to improve on this. The first 55 minutes was one of the best away displays I’ve seen from us this season.”
