Nick Blackman: Netted the winner from the spot

Nick Blackman's penalty gave Sheffield United a 1-0 home victory over Portsmouth to move second in League One.

The hosts nearly got off to a great start when Blackman threatened early on, firing in a shot which was saved by Mikkel Andersen.

Portsmouth then went close to scoring when a superb long-range effort from Akos Buzsaky struck the woodwork and Scott Allan also had a shot blocked.

United's Neill Collins headed over and Chris Porter put a header wide.

But it was the visitors who looked the more likely scorers in the first half with Allan shooting wide after a strong run into the area and Buzsaky's drive going just over.

Harry Maguire put a shot off-target before Blackman scored from the spot in the 66th minute after Lubomir Michalik's reckless sliding tackle on Porter.
