It was another great weekend for Sheffield United and Scotland international Oliver McBurnie as their outstanding return to the Premier League continues.

Chris Wilder’s men headed into Saturday’s contest with the possibility of going fifth in the EPL. Away to Brighton, they turned in a dogged performance which helped seal a big win.

McBurnie would have a big part to play.

First goal’s the winner

McBurnie hadn’t netted for Sheffield United since his late equaliser against Manchester United a few weeks ago. He clearly likes a big moment as the forward provided another for the Blades.

 

The 23rd minute came about and McBurnie’s time to shine was upon him. A long ball was brilliantly brought down by the Scotsman before he forced the ball past Matthew Ryan.

It showed the terrific endeavour and clinical qualities McBurnie has stored in his locker. His goal sealed a remarkable weekend finish for the Blades, who over Christmas, will sit just four points off a Champions League place.

Scotland’s EPL marksman ensured that feat with a brilliant bit of work.
