Former league leaders are beaten 4-0 at Bramall Lane
Tony Mowbray announced as new manager of Sunderland
Sheffield United moved top of the Championship in commanding fashion with a 4-0 win over former leaders Reading. A clash between the top two sides in the division had looked an enticing prospect, but the home side cruised to a one-sided victory at Bramall Lane.
Oli McBurnie opened the scoring with a header from Max Lowe’s superb cross after 11 minutes and Anel Ahmedhodzic volleyed home from a corner just seconds into the second period. Iliman Ndiaye put the result beyond doubt shortly after the hour mark and Ahmedhodzic completed the rout with a glancing header 10 minutes from time.
