Sheffield United continued their impressive recent run when they beat Blackpool in League One.

But it was heat-sapping stuff in the opening 45 minutes, as Blackpool frustrated the Blades to leave the game scoreless.

United striker Conor Sammon twice had chances to break the deadlock in front of the 20,199 crowd.

But the Tangerines held firm on a hot afternoon at Bramall Lane.

Sammon missed from close-range at the start of the second half, and it was the striker’s last contribution as Marc McNulty replaced him.

Billy Sharp broke the deadlock from a well-worked corner.

And then McNulty hammered home a second United goal from long range on 72 minutes.
