Sheffield United turned in one of their best performances of the season in seeing off Walsall at Bramall Lane.

Two eye-catching first half goals from Chris Basham and Billy Sharp won the game for the Blades, who were coming off the back of a disappointing defeat to Southend on Wednesday night.

United are now in eighth position in League One, but Nigel Adkins' side are eight points away from a play-off place.
