Sheffield United celebrate League One title in style with 3-0 defeat of Bradford

Date Posted,April 16, 2017

Sheffield United celebrated their League One title win in style, as they romped to a 3-0 win over play-off hopefuls Bradford City at Bramall Lane.

Oldham’s win over Bolton on Saturday meant that Chris Wilder’s men were crowned champions without kicking a ball, but a fast start at home to their Yorkshire rivals proved they were worth title winners.

Leon Clarke led the way with his assured finish after 13 minutes before Billy Sharp doubled the hosts’ lead with just 20 minutes on the clock.

A second from Clarke shortly before half-time meant that the game was over before half-time as a party atmosphere engulfed Bramall Lane.
