Pembo Praises Supporters

Pembo Praises Supporters
Blades academy director John Pemberton has praised the Sheffield United fans following the 2-2 first-leg draw in the FA Youth Cup.

Despite twice going behind, Callum McFadzean and Jordan Slew both struck from distance to make the scores all square going into the second leg, and Pemberton believes the supporters played a key part.

'I'd really like to thank the fans for some fantastic support, which the team will remember for the rest of their lives..

'It was very open and very entertaining, particularly in the second period because in the first 20 minutes or so we weren't ourselves, we looked nervous and it was probably our worst spell of the season.

'We were edgy, didn't get close to people, gave the ball away and were probably a bit fortunate to go in level. We are better than that and to equalise just before half-time was a massive boost to us.

'In the second we passed the ball better, got closer and although we went behind once more we responded again as we have all season - they have fantastic spirit.'
