Sheffield United continued their sensational start to the season as a Steve Kabba brace handed them a 2-0 win over struggling Ipswich.

Neil Warnock's side remain top of the league after winning six of their opening seven fixtures, although survived a penalty scare in a game that saw Ipswich's Castro Sito dismissed.

The Blades, full of confidence due to their early season form, started in destructive fashion and could have gone ahead in the first minute as Chris Morgan headed just wide.

However, they did not have to wait long to take the advantage as David Unsworth, who turned out for the visitors last season, curled in a dangerous corner.

Kabba, currently returning to form in impressive fashion after suffering a run of injuries, drove in from a tight angle as Warnock's side got their noses in front.

Summer signing Paul Ifill enjoyed an influential afternoon as he went close with two efforts, before teeing up Phil Jagielka for a shot from the edge of the box that Lewis Price parried.

United continued to dominate after the break but Kabba nearly compromised all his good work by hauling down Sito in the box.

However, Paddy Kenny denied Darren Currie with a fantastic stop, before Sito was dismissed for two bookings in the space of eight minutes.

Kabba capped an eventful afternoon as he picked up Jagielka's pass late on and netted to further cement The Blades' fine start to the campaign.
