Sheffield United Paper Review

30 March 2015

What the press made of the victory at Bramall Lane

The Sentinel
RYAN Colclough scored a stunning winner as Crewe Alexandra recorded their first ever win at Bramall Lane to pick up a priceless three points.
Crewe took a deserved first half lead through Lauri Dalla Valle after 12 minutes but United’s second half pressure told on 55 minutes as they equalised through Jason Holt.
The Alex worked tirelessly throughout and put in a real shift for the club and Steve Davis will have been delighted with the effort shown from his side, capped off by Colclough's stunning injury time winner.

The Chronicle
The road to redemption for Ryan Colclough started at Bramall Lane as the young striker hit a stunning 90th minute winner to claim a vital three points for Crewe Alexandra at high-flying Sheffield United.
Colclough, whose trials and tribulations off the field have seen him out of Crewe action for the last 16 months, came off the bench in the 71st minute to become an unlikely hero as he gave Steve Davis' sides chances of League One survival an almighty boost.
The 19-year-old smashed home a rocket of a winner in the 90th minute from 25-yards out that fizzed into the back of the Blades net and completed a remarkable return to action for the young striker.
