Sheffield United won 1-0 away at Fulham in the Championship last night.
Sheffield United made it four wins on the bounce with an impressive 1-0 win at Craven Cottage last night.
The Championship leaders were dealt their first defeat since the start of October when Iliman Ndiaye struck early on – his third goal of the season so far.
For Paul Heckingbottom’s side, it’s a win that lifts them up into the top half of the Championship and to within touching distance of the top-six.
There were some quality player performances last night and none more so than Ndiaye – the Frenchman featured for the first time since Heckingbottom’s permanent appointment, and he thoroughly impressed.
The 21-year-old seems to be one of many who are benefiting from a more attacking style of play under the new boss.
See what these Sheffield United fans had to say on Twitter about Ndiaye’s performance last night:

Great performance that all round. Fantastic goal by Ndiaye, really dug in and got lucky right at the death

Sharp outstanding up top. John Egan a colossus against the league’s best striker. Solid in midfield, and bits of magic from Ndiaye. A proper performance and it seems Sheffield United are back at it. Great to see 👏👏 #sufc #twitterblades

Brilliant from the Blades. Not gonna make outlandish predictions based on Heckingbottom’s first 3 games in charge but this is so much better than earlier in the season. Working together as a unit and Ndiaye’s goal absolutely superb.#FFCvSUFC #SUFC
