Madden wasted the best chance of a poor opening period following a weak back-header from Harry Maguire, while at the other end, United struggled to carve out any clear-cut opportunities.

But Madden atoned five minutes after the break when he cut inside and hit a low angled drive past George Long.

The Blades were left with a mountain to climb in the 66th minute when a blunder by George Long, who failed to control Danny Higginbotham’s back pass, allowed Madden to tap in the second in the 66th minute.
