Jamal Blackman's return to Sheffield United's starting eleven owes much to Simon Moore's sending off at Wolves.

Moore had displaced the on-loan Chelsea goalkeeper after returning from injury late last year, but hasn't had a look in since Blackman returned seven games ago.

And the situation doesn't look like changing any time soon, after Blackman's heroics helped United to overcome Burton Albion 2-0 on Tuesday.

Nigel Clough's side side came close to equalising shortly before half-time, but the Chelsea-owned player denied Lloyd Dyer's effort, before the Blades doubled their advantage after the restart.

And though some questioned the 24-year-old's performances earlier in the campaign, the consensus among Sheffield United fans now is that Blackman should be signed permanently this summer.

Here's what the Blades are saying on Twitter...








The Chelsea academy product has yet to make a senior appearance for the Blues, but signed a new four-year contract upon his departure for Bramall Lane ahead of this season.

Could/should Blackman return to Sheffield United next term?
