Port Vale 2-1 Sheffield United

A strong first-half performance from Port Vale was enough to secure three points against Sheffield United.

Vale took the lead in the 17th minute when Byron Moore swept home a low left-footed effort past Mark Howard.

Uche Ikpeazu extended Vale's lead when his effort from 18 yards rifled off the underside of the crossbar past Howard.

The Blades scored a consolation in stoppage time when Matt Done's left-footed effort beat Jak Alnwick from the edge of the six yard box.
