Humbled at already-relegated Portsmouth on Saturday, Chris Morgan's men were undone by a 49th-minute goal from Chuks Aneke.

The Blades had already booked their play-off place but Aneke's winner means they have won just one of their last seven games.

Aneke stunned the visitors four minutes after the break with a superb 25-yard finish.

An early goal from midfielder Mike Jones gave Crawley a deserved 1-0 victory and condemned Preston to their first defeat in five games.

Jones drove Crawley ahead after only six minutes with a bouncing right-foot shot from 25 yards into the bottom corner.

Joe Jacobson's classy free-kick wrapped up a deserved 1-0 win for Shrewsbury against former club Oldham.

Jacobson, the stand-in captain, chose a perfect time to grab his first goal of the season when he whipped a 20-yard effort over the Oldham wall and high into the net four minutes into the second half.

Both of these sides guaranteed League One survival last weekend.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
