Sheffield United defeated Championship leaders Fulham

Sheffield United continued their winning start as they defeated Fulham in the Championship game played at Craven Cottage. Sheffield United’s side was full of spirit since the starting whistle netting the opening goal in the early three minutes of the game. Iliman Ndiaye’s excellent solo goal gave them a 1-0 match score victory over stuttering Championship leaders Fulham. With this victory, Sheffield is in 11th position while Fulham remains on top despite a loss in the football match.

Speaking after the match Fulham’s coach Marco Silva said: “It was a frustrating evening for us, definitely. If you analyse the chances that they created and we created during the game, it was not a game for us to lose because we had two moments where we could score; they had the goal and I don’t remember anything more. But the overall performance was disappointing. We didn’t perform even close to where we should to have a good evening, to win the game and enjoy what we were doing on the pitch.”

“After the goal, we were less confident to play, but it is in that moment that we should show why we are on the top and our personality and character as a team. It wasn’t our best evening and, of course, we are disappointed at that.”

Sheffield United’s boss Paul Heckingbottom said: “I could stand here and be critical and say we could have, should have been better with the ball, but having reflected on the game quickly and gone through it, there is no way we would have won a game like that a while ago. The players can be proud of the effort they put in.”

“We limited them to very few chances – probably the only one was in injury-time when we got away with one when they hit the bar. Apart from that, we were very comfortable. Of course, we would have liked to have been better with the ball, but apart from that, we were strong.”
