VIDEO: Sheffield United 1 Coventry 0 - James Shield on a 'passionate' display by Blades

The Star's Sheffield United writer James Shield believes the Blades could argue they fully deserved their 1-0 victory over Coventry City, because of the 'heart and desire' they showed to gain the points.

Billy Sharp came off the bench to score the only goal of the game against League One's second-placed side and Nigel Adkins side had to ride their luck at certain moments.

However James reflected on the hard-work put in by the home side which ultimately led them to what could be a huge win in their chase for promotion this season.

James said: "Sheffield United frustrated (Coventry) well. When they defended they defended with real heart and desire, put bodies on the line and then popped up at the end with a smash and grab raid."
