Sheffield United Player Ratings
Dean Henderson (6)
Had no chance to save either goal that was conceded. Didn’t have to make crucial saves though.
Chris Basham (6)
Basham was defensively good but it is his incisive passing which has raised a few eyebrows in a positive way.
John Egan (6)
Not afraid to give his all for the team. Made some very good interceptions and crucial tackles.
Jack O’Connell (6)
His battle with Millwall striker Steve Morison was an interesting one throughout the game.
Enda Stevens (7)
The wing-back was very effective moving forward. He seems to gain confidence with every outing.
Kieron Freeman (7)
Freeman spent most of the game in the opposition half. We can imagine how Sheffield United would have dominated the game. This was amongst the two mistakes which offered two goals to Millwall.
Oliver Norwood (7)
A very good orchestrator of the passing moves and the dictation of the game’s tempo. The on-loan midfielder is doing very well.
John Fleck (6)
Assisted the Gregory goal and apparently did a huge favour to his opponents. Apart from that, he was good.
Mark Duffy (7.5)
Duffy’s crossing, intelligence and the threat to the opposition defence are pretty obvious these days. Assisted the first goal.
Billy Sharp (8)
Worked hard to not allow opponents easy time on the ball. Missed a penalty in the first half but scored later to cover that up.
David McGoldrick (7)
Was always in and around the creative moments. His movement and touch are special. Scored two late goals to win the game.
Marvin Johnson (On after 74 mins) (5)
Came to add more energy to the midfield.
Richard Stearman (On after 88 mins) (N/A)
After United got the lead, Wilder threw in a centre-back for extra protection.

Had no time to make an impact.
