Billy Sharp scored his sixth goal in as many league games as Sheffield United overcame a Doncaster side that played with 10 men for more than 50 minutes.

Chris Basham met a Craig Alcock cross to fire home for the Blades only for Cameron Stewart to level soon after with a curling free-kick from 25 yards.

Conor Sammon steered home the hosts' second before Gary Mackenzie saw red for a high-footed challenge on Alcock.

Sharp rounded goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann to complete the win.
