Sheffield United’s League 1 season continued with a win against Shrewsbury at Greenhous Meadow on Tuesday.

The faint United hopes of making the play-offs remain following a two-one win at Shrewsbury.

A winning run needed to come several weeks (if not months) earlier though you feel with it likely we’ll see too many variables out of our control to sneak into the top six!

Billy Sharp put United ahead early on with his 20th-goal of the season, which was taken into half time.

Relegation threatened Shrewsbury, who missed a first half penalty when United ‘keeper George Long saved Kyle Vassell’s effort, equalised early in the second half when Abu Ogogo converted from a Sullay Kaikai cross.

Midway through the second half Che Adams bagged the winner for United too see us move to within four-points of the play-offs so the gap is being caught but matches are likely to run out, aren’t they?

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played in midweek….

These were the other results.

Tuesday 19th April 2016
Barnsley 1-0 Peterborough
Burton 1-1 Wigan
Chesterfield 1-1 Doncaster
Coventry 1-0 Bradford
Crewe 1-1 Colchester
Millwall 1-0 Fleetwood
Rochdale 1-1 Gillingham
Scunthorpe 2-1 Bury
Shrewsbury 1-2 Sheff Utd
Southend 0-1 Oldham
Walsall 1-1 Swindon

A top of the table battle between Burton and Wigan (one-one) at the Pirelli Stadium saw both retain the automatic promotion places, the Latics leading the way with Walsall (one-one) missing the chance to close in on them when they drew at the Banks’s Stadium against Swindon.

This automatic promotion battle could go all the way!

A play-off battle is also likely to go to the wire but Millwall (one-nil) are almost assured of a place following a one-nil win over relegation threatened Fleetwood.

Bradford (one-nil) dropped points when beaten at Coventry with Gillingham (one-one) just about clinging on to the final place at the moment but Barnsley (one-nil) are right on their coattails after the Oakwell win against Peterborough.

Oldham’s (one-nil) win at Southend leaves them looking good for survival now but Shrewsbury (two-one) are still very much in trouble with that Sheffield United win keeping alive faint, albeit unlikely, hopes the Blades have of a play-off place.

Colchester’s (one-one) draw at already relegated Crewe leaves the U’s almost confirmed as joining them in going down with Chesterfield (one-one) keeping themselves away from trouble whereas leaving Doncaster on the brink.

Who was the Blades MotM in this game?
