Sheffield United went to the top of League One with a 1-0 win at fellow promotion hopefuls Bournemouth on Saturday.

Jamie Murphy scored the only goal of the game on 20 minutes, firing home at the second attempt, after his first shot came back off the post.

United could have already been ahead, Barry Robson seeing his dipping volley hit the top of the crossbar.

Dave Kitson missed a good chance to increase the lead for United whilst at the other end; Harry Arter came closest for the home side, who have now lost two games in a row.

The win for United was a fourth in a row, they lead the table by just one point from Swindon Town, Tranmere Rovers, and Doncaster Rovers whilst Yeovil Town and Bournemouth are just two points behind in fifth and sixth.

United are back in action again on Tuesday night when they welcome Leyton Orient to Bramall Lane.
