Ben Davies: The match-winner

Ben Davies: The match-winner

Sheffield United earned their first points of the season with a 2-1 win over Peterborough thanks to a late Ben Davies strike.

Davies struck in the 84th minute, drilling home from 20 yards after a long throw had not been properly cleared.

Jose Baxter had given the Blades a first-half lead with a side-foot finish before Shaun Brisley equalised from a corner nine minutes later.

Posh started well with Jon Taylor striking the post from a tight angle, but it was the Blades who took the lead in the 25th minute.

Baxter played a one-two with Davies down the right side of the area before slotting past Ben Alnwick at the far post.

The lead was gone in the 34th minute when Taylor's corner from the left was headed powerfully in at the near post by centre-half Brisley.

The second half was an open affair with both sides threatening. But Davies' precise finish just before the end gave Nigel Clough's men the points and ended Peterborough's perfect start to the season.
