KVK Tienen 1:3 Sheffield United

Last updated : 10 July 2011 By BME

The front men Billy Sharp and Danny Webber yet again got on the score sheet just as they did on Monday night against Ferencvaros. Aussie midfielder David Carney also contributed to the Blades goals.

It wasn't all celebrations though in the Blades camp as new signing Sun Jihai proved he wasn't quite up to it with a red card been shown to himself. Meanwhile defender Ugo Ehiogu put the ball into the back of his own net to score the only goal of the game for KVK Tienen.

Dufoor and De Silva forced Bennett to stay on his toes but the KVK backline nearly conceded after an attempt to cut out a Billy Sharp pass to Rob Hulse as they saw Vanhees mistake rebound off the crossbar.

One new signing may not have proved himself good but one certainly did. Greg Halford's 'weapon' which is the throw-in lead to a goal. His throw landed to the feet of Billy Sharp who could thump the ball past the Tienen goalkeeper.

The Belgian club replied straight away as their effort to equalise was well taken by Bennett who could tip over the crossbar. Efforts from Halford, Speed and Tonge troubled the keeper but he was determined not to concede a second.

Stead and Carney then came onto the playing field at half-time as Blackwell wanted some fresh legs out their. But it was the defensive side of things that let United down when Ehiogu put the ball into his own net on 53 minutes. The former Middlesbrough man unfortunately headed past Bennett who had no chance of preventing.

Carney who has took criticism from some Blades fans slotted home. He retained United's lead after a right-footed strike. Carney was on fire after his half-volley really troubled the keeper but he saved fantastically.

Some late challenges from new signing Sun Jihai saw him see red on his Blades debut. Sun who was eager to make an impression didn't shine at all. KVK then troubled Bennett with efforts from Konan, Belme and Vanarwegen.

Lee Hendrie made dividends when he broke into the box while getting tugs of the shirt by Vanhees with the referee pointing to the spot. Danny Webber took the responsibility and cooly placed the ball to the keepers right and rounded off his hat-trick of goals in the Blades European Tour so far.

The Blades take on Helmond Sports on Saturday in the final game of the pre-season Euro Tour.
