Sheffield United 1 Carlisle United 0: Evans nets Blades winner

Have your say

Danny Wilson’s Sheffield United beat Carlisle United in League One.

Defender Johnny Ertl returned to the Blades squad after eight months on the sidelines with a knee injury. But there was no place for him in the match-day 16.

On loan winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is still recovering from a hamstring injury and defenders Chris Morgan and Andy Taylor remain long term absentees.

Ched Evans put the Blades in front after 21 minutes from a corner, his fourth goal in as many games.

United striker Richard Cresswell should have added a second goal in the second half from the penalty spot, but spurned the chance.
