Alex striker Chuks Aneke scored a screamer to sink United, who had already booked their play-off place, but have now won just one of their last seven games as their run-in continued to stutter.

The Blades caretaker manager said: "It's not ideal going into the play-off games in this form but we have an honest set of players who work hard for each other.

"We've got to get ready for three massive play-off games but confidence is good even if the lads are feeling very frustrated.

"We knew we were already in the top seven so we took the opportunity to play a few others and try a few different things but the 11 we had on the pitch should have had enough to win the game.

"We tested the keeper, we have looked dangerous from set-plays but they have one chance and they win the game.

"But that's been our Achilles heel all season - when we are on top and creating chances we are not ruthless enough."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
