No Goals For Partner Clubs
The Blades were held 0-0 by Qingdao Zhongneng despite having the upper hand in the game. Wang Song went close early on, but Rodrigues was closest, as the Brazilian headed against the bar.
Fradi are now three games without a win after drawing 0-0 at Kaposvar. Bobby Davison admitted his side lacked fitness in the second half, which could explain the pressure they were under. Blades Watch: Sam Wedgbury played the entire game in midfield, partnering ex United midfielder James Ashmore.
Central Coast Marriners:
Nicky Travis made his second appearance for the Marriners from the bench, but was unable to prevent them slipping to a 1-0 defeat at Brisbane, following a goal from Craig Moore, the defender who many will remember from his time at Newcastle (and when he should have been sent off against the Blades).
