Enda Stevens scores for Sheffield United as they defeat Norwich City 2-1

first_imgENDA STEVENS continued both his and Sheffield United’s excellent season as he nodded in a header to help them on their way to 2-1 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road.It was the 29-year-old’s first goal of the season as he levelled proceedings after Alexander Tettey had given The Canaries a first-half lead.The Republic of Ireland wing-back made a purposeful dart into the box to meet a cross from George Baldock with a powerful header.Baldock then got his name on the score-sheet just minutes later as some tricky footwork got him a bit of space just inside the box before he slotted it home.Stevens’ club and international teammate David McGoldrick had a fine too late on but blazed over as his frustrating time in front of goal continues as he still has not scored in the league this season.In spite of that miss, McGoldrick and Stevens have been two of the stand-out performers for both club and country this season whether it be for the high-flying Blades or Mick McCarthy’s less inspired outfit.IRELAND ANGLEJohn Egan also lined out in his usual centre-back spot.If Ireland are to qualify for Euro 2020 in March via the playoff route, all three men will likely have to continue their fine form.MOST READ IN SPORTTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubToday was a return to winning ways for Chris Wilder’s team as last week their six game unbeaten run came to an end against Newcastle United.They now sit in 8th position just a point behind Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham and seven off fourth-placed Chelsea.With fixtures against Liverpool and Man City to come this month, wins like today’s could be crucial in keeping them in the top half of the table for the foreseeable future.last_img read more
