Sheffield United 3-0 Worcester City

Sheffield United progressed to the second round of the FA Cup after beating non-league Worcester City 3-0.

Mid-way through the first half City right-back Sam Minihan brought down Che Adams in the penalty area, and Jose Baxter scored from the spot.

But the Blades had to wait until late on to achieve some breathing space when Conor Sammon's close-range finish left the visitors dispirited.

Kieron Freeman's last-minute effort ensured United's progress.
