Sheffield United shared eight goals with Bournemouth in their League One meeting at Bramall Lane.

Tommy Elphick put the Cherries in front on 20 minutes, but United then produced some exciting football with midfielder Ryan Flynn scoring twice, John Cofie – who also hit the crossbar – delivered a 25-yard screamer and Kevin McDonald struck the inside of the post.

Lee Barnard headed home a corner just after half-time, before substitute Richard Cresswell made it 4-2.

There was late drama as Marc Pugh made it 4-3, only for a Nick Blackman stoppage time penalty to secure all three points and maintain United’s unbeaten record.
