Bygone Blades... 2001

Last updated : 31 March 2016 By @blades_mad1889

Tomorrow will mark 15 years to the day since Sheffield United won by two goals to one at Hillsborough in the first league meeting in S6 for seven years. Second goals from Laurent D’Jaffo and Carl Asaba secured a memorable win in what was, for myself, the first time I had seen United beat Wednesday. Gerald Sibson scored a late cracker to see the game end with a nail biting finish.

Unfortunately, I was unable to locate any images of the goal scorers but below are two images from the game...
