Sheffield United 2-0 Blackpool

Marc McNulty
Marc McNulty scored nine league goals last season, and got his first of this campaign against Blackpool

Sheffield United made it three successive wins in League One with victory over struggling Blackpool.

After a goalless first half, Blades striker Conor Sammon fired wide from five yards.

Billy Sharp met Jay McEveley's low corner with a right-footed drive for the opener and Marc McNulty doubled the lead with a long range effort.

Substitute Martyn Woolford could have added another but Blackpool keeper Kyle Letheren parried well late on.
