Blades Beat Dundee At The Lane

Blades Beat Dundee At The Lane

Sheffield United secured, not that results are too important at the moment, their first win of pre-season when they saw off Scottish outfit Dundee on Friday night at Bramall Lane.

Nigel Clough's summer signing Alcock, McGahey, Basham and Campbell-Ryce starting against the Scottish premier league outfit, getting their first taste of life as Blades players at Bramall Lane with Butler and McNulty on the bench.

Basham and McNulty were among the scorers as the netted debut goals in a 4-2 win.

Murphy capitalised on a defensive mistake from Dundee early on as he got on to the end of a poor backpass to put us ahead before Tankulic drew the visitors level to see the scores tied at one-one at the break.

Within five-minutes of the restart Basham restore out leave, being in the right place at the right time to slide home a blocked effort, another defensive mistake left Basham away and clear and with the chance to add a third. He squared to Baxter who finished into the empty net for the third.

McNulty, one of a treble change made with a little over 15-minutes to play, as Clough used plenty of options again, marked his debut with the fourth before Dundee has the final say with Konrad forcing him Dundee's second with six-minutes to play to see the game end in a four-two win for the Blades.

A win is always welcomed but minutes on the pitch as fitness was built up some more was the priority.

Sheff United: Howard (Willis 83), Alcock, McGahey (Butler 73), Collins (Khan 77), Harris (Paling 77), Reed (Doyle 67), Basham (Dimaio 77), Scougall (McGinn 73), Campbell-Ryce (Davies 67), Murphy (McNulty 67), Baxter (Porter 73).
Unused: Maguire.
