Sheffield United 4-0 Reading: Anel Ahmedhodzic shines with a brace as Blades leapfrogs Reading to become TOP of the Championship with Oli McBurnie and Iliman Ndiaye also scoring to give hosts sixth home win in a row

  • Sheffield United beat Reading 4-0 to steal Championship table top spot
  • Reading had taken first place prior to the game and now drops to third place
  • In a blistering start to the game, Oli McBurnie scored with 11 minutes on the clock
  • Anel Ahmedhodzic then doubled the Blades’ lead early in the second half
  • Iliman Ndiaye’s left-footed attack saw the hosts reach three after the hour
  • Ahmedhodzic then went home for his second and fourth from his side late

Traumatic doesn’t do justice to Oli McBurnie’s struggles over the past two years, but a new season has revived the striker.

The Scottish international, who came from Swansea for £20 million three summers ago, had scored just two goals in as many seasons. However, last night he scored his second in as many games with a brilliant header in the first half.

With defender Anel Ahemdhodzic winning a clinical attack from Iliman Ndiaye with a wonderful double match in the second half, Paul Heckingbottom’s men jumped to first place over Reading.

These are early days, but don’t bet they stay there – the Blades are a formidable force on Bramall Lane.

Leeds-born McBurnie was brimming with confidence against a Reading side who had won their previous three games.

The Blades led from the 11th minute when Max Lowe’s deflected cross was headed in firmly by McBurnie at the nearest post.

After the break, Doyle delivered a corner kick from the right and Ahmedhodzic fired in a stunning volley.

Berge’s pass later enabled Ndiaye to score the third before Ahmedhodzic’s agile header sealed a handsome home win.
