United beats Fulham

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Fulham's miserable season continued as they were knocked out of the FA Cup in extra time by League One Sheffield United.

Shaun Miller's last-minute header in the fourth-round replay helped the Blades progress in dramatic style.

United shaded the first half, with Jamie Murphy heading narrowly wide.

Fulham barely threatened, with Bob Harris's free-kick going narrowly over for the Blades, who left it until the 119th minute to seal victory.

Before beating Fulham, Sheffield United had won just one of their last five competitive away games — that win coming in the FA Cup third round at Aston Villa

After slumping to the bottom of the Premier League last weekend, the Cottagers' misery was extended following a lacklustre display against opponents stuck in the relegation zone two divisions below them.

Both managers named much-changed sides, with the Blades edging a turgid affair early on as John Brayford fired narrowly over after picking up a loose ball, before Murphy directed a header wide.
