Lowton: On the scoresheet for United

Lowton: On the scoresheet for United

Goals from Chris Porter, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Matt Lowton and Erik Tonne gave Sheffield United a 4-0 win at home to Bury.

Porter threatened a couple of times early on and Stephen Quinn had a free-kick well saved by Cameron Belford before the Blades took a 43rd-minute lead. Porter scored from close-range after Mendez-Laing and Quinn both had efforts blocked.

A mistake from Belford gifted United a second goal two minutes into the second-half when the goalkeeper misjudged Mendez-Laing's cross, turning the ball into his own net at the near post.

Giles Coke, making his Bury debut after signing on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, had a low shot easily saved by Steve Simonsen but the Shakers never threatened to mount a comeback.

Lowton put United further ahead after 71 minutes, turning the ball into the unguarded net after Belford could only parry Porter's low shot.

Bury's Michael Jones floated a free-kick just over before Tonne rounded off the scoring with six minutes remaining with a shot into the roof of the net following a corner.
