Billy Sharp scored his 15th and 16th goals of the season as Sheffield United beat Oldham 2-0 at Bramall Lane on Boxing Day.

The second was Sharp's 50th goal in United colours, and broke Oldham's hearts after they put up a spirited fight for large periods of this game.

United goalkeeper Simon Moore made two good saves, including one stunner from ex-Blade Ryan Flynn, before Sharp's dramatic intervention calmed the nerves around Bramall Lane and he added a drilled second.

MATCH ANALYSIS: The massacre many had predicted failed to materialise but Sheffield United got the job done.
