“Didn’t expect anything from today’s fixture so no surprises here!”

“Didn’t really expect anything given Sheff U are one of best sides in league – but it’s a major concern how inept we are at defending away from home.”

Sheffield looked just a bit better than us today”

“Sheff U finishing int top 4 for me”

“Sheff Utd are a good side so no disgrace to lose to them.”

“Always going to be a difficult game today but we didn’t test them much.”

“Did ok in spells but defensively we a shambles.When we did get forward it quickly fizzled out.”

“First 20 and last 20 we were very good, in between awful!!”

“another poor performance”

“First half was the best we’ve played away since Stoke second half. Apart from the shambolic defending for both goals.”

“Second half we were the better side. Nothing in it first half. They just took all their chances”

“Think it’s a more encouraging performance against the arguably the best team in the league.”

“Without three of our front four and one of our regular defensive midfielders out we didn’t fair to badly. Just a shame we have not got the strength in depth.
It’s going to be a long season.”

“Considering we were playing against the best team I the league away from home with about half the squad missing, it could have been a lot worse.”

“Thought performance was as good as could be expected …but ousting Powell again 70 mins and always going to leave us with a creative hole.Sharp is a good striker at this level and always been a workhorse so credit to him..They top of league…..but we’re they far superior to us ?..Not for me …just have quality going forward.”

“I felt we were actually ok today performance wise, i felt the scoreline flattered Sheffield but you can see why the are towards the top of the league – one of the best sides we’ve played.Biggest difference was Billy Sharpe was alive to everything and absolutely clinical when he got half a chance. While too often our final ball was poor and when chances did come we couldn’t convert.”

“Dan Burn and Dunkley got totally battered”

“Burn was always going to struggle against sharp and so it turned out”

“Problem there  is if we had rested Dunkley then we would have had an untried centre partnership playing against one of the best forwards in the league in Sharp”

“Burn was disgraceful.”

“Sheff U fouled Powell on every high ball but ref let it go.”
