sbo333 Sheffield United moved back into the Championship play-off places with a comfortable 3-1 win at lowly Reading.


On an icy surface that made for a poor spectacle, United led 2-0 at the break after goals from Billy Sharp and Mark Duffy.


Reading cut the deficit early in the second half through Omar Richards and could have levelled in the 62nd minute. But United's replacement keeper Simon Moore saved Leandro Bacuna's penalty and Sharp added his second goal almost immediately.


United led the table in mid-November but a poor run of only four wins in 16 matches had seen them slip to eighth place. Reading, the beaten play-off finalists last season, went into the match just four points clear of the relegation zone.


United began quickly in the sub-zero temperature, with the pitch covered in a thin layer of snow. They missed two gilt-edged chances in the opening minutes as the Reading defence failed to cope with the slippery conditions. sbo333


Leon Clarke should have done better when seizing on a Liam Moore error but drove wide with only home goalkeeper Vito Mannone to beat. Clarke soon had a chance to atone but, after a mistake by Tiago Ilori, saw his effort blocked.


Reading were not helped by the loss of winger Garath McCleary after only six minutes due to injury and five minutes later, United deservedly went ahead.


Clarke crossed low from the left and former Reading loanee Sharp saw his first close-range effort saved by Mannone but followed up to score his 12th goal of the season.


Reading tried to respond but offered little going forward apart from a tame effort from Pelle Clement that United keeper Jamal Blackman saved easily.


United maintained control approaching the interval, with Lee Evans driving over from 20 yards. However, in the 34th minute, they lost both Blackman and Clarke, who were injured in separate incidents and were replaced by Moore and Clayton Donaldson respectively.


One minute before half-time, Duffy brilliantly extended United's lead when he unleashed a fierce 25-yard drive that flew past Mannone into the top right-hand corner of his net.


Having created little in the first half, Reading unexpectedly reduced the gap in the 51st minute. Bacuna's powerful free-kick was well saved by Moore but substitute Richards followed up to lash home the rebound.


They could have drawn level in the 62nd minute, when Richard Stearman fouled Liam Kelly in the area, but Moore guessed correctly to push away Bacuna's spot-kick.


A minute later, United effectively sealed victory when the unmarked Sharp coolly slotted past Mannone via a post. sbo333

Hearts 2-1 Hibernian: Steven Naismith strike ends Hibs hopes of finishing second

 
wwwbeer777 Steven Naismith struck the winner as Hearts ended Hibernian's hopes of finishing second in the Ladbrokes Premiership. A 2-1 defeat at Tynecastle means Hibs will finish fourth unless they beat Rangers by six goals at Easter Road on Sunday. Naismith headed home in the 57th minute after Florian Kamberi's penalty had cancelled out Kyle Lafferty's opening goal.

Hibs only needed a point to keep in touch with second-placed Aberdeen but they rarely threatened a second equaliser. They are now relying on Celtic to beat Motherwell in the William Hill Scottish Cup final to claim a Europa League spot, unless they pull off an extraordinary result against third-placed Rangers. Hibs made the brighter start with Brandon Barker looking the player likeliest to make a breakthrough. The winger had one shot blocked after a piercing run and then forced a decent stop from Jon McLaughlin. wwwbeer777

The simmering derby tension boiled over when Lafferty went in hard and late on Lewis Stevenson, sparking a bout of pushing and a yellow card for the Northern Ireland international. Hearts channelled their aggression well and went ahead in the 26th minute when Lafferty got the better of Stevenson to get on the end of Naismith's through ball. The striker poked the ball beyond Ofir Marciano into the corner of the net from 10 yards. Lafferty celebrated his 19th goal of the season in front of the visiting fans and signalled he was unconcerned by the ensuing missiles.

The action was unrelenting before the break. Harry Cochrane, Hearts' 17-year-old midfielder, was more than holding his own amid the rancour and he showed skill and drive to twice get into shooting positions. Marciano saved his first effort and a second deflected just wide. Barker and Scott Allan forced saves at the other end but Hibs suffered a blow before the interval when wide player Martin Boyle went off with a hamstring injury. Dylan McGeouch came on. wwwbeer777
