Sheffield United manager David Weir admits he would swap a performance for three points against Crawley Town, writes James Shield.

Weir’s side slipped to a sixth consecutive League One defeat when they were beaten by Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend despite controlling long periods of the contest.

Town, who are unbeaten in five outings, visit Bramall Lane on Friday evening and the former Scotland international told The Star: “We would prefer to be a team that plays badly and wins rather than one which plays well and loses.

“It’s a reoccurring theme - we played well again but we did not win - and ultimately that’s what we are judged on.

“But the lads (at Wolves) did not get what they deserved.”

Meanwhile, Ioan Evans has helped Wales progress to the UEFA under-17 Championship elite qualifying round.

Evans, who captains United’s under-18’s, featured during the principality’s 3-0 victory over Slovenia.

Jake Wright scored a hat-trick and Joel Coustrain was also on target as Travis Binnion’s charges beat rivals Ipswich Town 4-1 at the Redtooth Academy three days ago.
