Sheffield United 3-0 Fleetwood Town

Che Adams
Sheffield United striker Che Adams scored his seventh goal of the season

Che Adams scored two goals to help Sheffield United take all three points against Fleetwood Town whose poor away form continued.

Adams gave the hosts the lead after 54 seconds when Chris Maxwell failed to catch Chris Basham's swinging cross.

Adams slotted home to double the lead after the break before he set up Billy Sharp to extend their advantage.

Jamie Proctor's header and Antonio Sarcevic's long-range effort was the closest Fleetwood came to a comeback.

The Cod Army have won just once away from the Highbury Stadium this season.
