Good game for the neutral: Sheff Utd 3-4 City

Blimey - they don't get much more tense than this.

City went ahead at Bramall Lane on 41 minutes, only for the Blades to equalise 2 minutes later. Only two more minutes passed before Whittingham made it 2-1 from the spot, and STILL in jury time in the first half,Henderson equalised yet again for United.

Dave Jones must have (should have) given them a roasting at the break, and on 60 minutes Whittingham grabbed his second of the match. When he wrapped up his hat trick on 80 minutes, City must have thought they had this one in the bag, but we all know how frail they are under pressure, and true enough in the fourth minutes of added time Harper made it 3-4. Surely all done? No, the Blades still managed to get the ball in the net again, but thankfully this was ruled offside.

So maniacal ends to each half leave City with all 3 points (just) and that's enough to put us second in the table.

Up the City!
