Sheffield United won against Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday.
Chris Basham’s side in the 71st minute proved to be the difference between the Whites and the Blades in the Yorkshire derby.
Former Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest striker Collymore has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the win for Chris Wilder’s side, and so has ex-United defender Danny Higginbotham, who now works as pundit for Sky Sports.
Monster win for Sheffield United. Cliché time again, if that doesn't give them belief and impetus, little will.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) March 16, 2019
What a result for @SUFC_tweets and what a magnificent job Chris Wilder is doing. Strength in depth compared to last season could be a huge factor in run in. Love the style of play and most teams find it difficult to deal with.— Danny Higginbotham (@Higginbotham05) March 16, 2019
