Sheffield United thrashed Reading on Saturday afternoon.
Sheffield United's push for promotion was boosted again on Saturday afternoon, hammering Reading 4-0 at Bramall Lane.
The Blades, who beat Middlesbrough in midweek, picked up another home win to go second, with Leeds United not in action.
Chris Wilder's men picked up an easy win over struggling Reading, with Kieron Freeman getting himself on the scoresheet inside a minute.
Gary Madine added two more before the break, before John Fleck grabbed a fourth in the second half, sealing a perfect afternoon for United.
The Blades remain two points behind league leaders Norwich, and they did it all without even having to bring on top scorer Billy Sharp, who started on the bench.
The 26-year-old endured a miserable time at Villa Park, but showed promising signs for United, picking up an assist in that hammering of Reading.
Fans have taken to Twitter to react to his performance, praising him for being quick and hard working, with a goal being the only thing missing from his display.
Others called Hogan 'fantastic' and 'immense', believing there were hugely encouraging signs from the new loanee, which Villa fans won't exactly be pleased to hear after his Villa Park struggles.
Aside from not getting a goal I thought Hogan looked very promising to say he’s hardly played. Very quick and hard-working. Could be a real asset once he settles into the style and tempo of #sufc— (@mrdavidsykes) February 16, 2019
A very encouraging debut from Scott Hogan at the Lane today. Linked up superbly with Madine. They looked as if they'd been playing together for a while! Unlucky not to get on the scoresheet but oh my did he work his socks off! #sufc #twitterblades— Blades Mad (@Blades_Mad) February 16, 2019

Absolutely lovely that was #twitterblades class from everyone especially Madine and Fleck. Only thing missing was a Hogan goal, great debut though— Chris B (@chrisbrunt1988) February 16, 2019
Superb performance from start to finish.Scored in the first minute & no let up to the end.We look a quality side oozing confidence.Hogan a threat; others who came in did a job.Madine the stand out.They could not handle him. All without Bash, Jack, Billy & Didsy #twitterblades— David Beeden (@Deadbat_DB) February 16, 2019
Madine absolutely class again, fully deserved his goals Fleck and Norwood ran the midfield and Hogan is very good off the ball makes clever runs just needs a goal to get him going Egan solid as a rock again Stevens decent in LCB craine good squad player #twitterblades— Ry (@ryryutb) February 16, 2019

A complete performance from a much changed line up. Madine & Hogan caused problems all afternoon & Fleck ran his blood to water. This group is going places #Twitterblades— Blade 1962 (@Blade1558) February 16, 2019
Madine won everything and fully deserved praise but very underrated performance from Hogan. Constantly pressing and movement created 3/4 chances I'm sure he'll start finishing. Gives pace up front we've been missing to break fast when we win ball back in midfield #twitterblades— Sam (@diddybakes) February 16, 2019
