The Blades travel to Morecambe this evening for a first round League Cup clash with the Shrimps, looking to bounce back from the disappointing league opener on Saturday.
The only previous League Cup fixture between the two sides was at Bramall Lane on 25th September 2007, when the Blades won convincingly – putting five past the visitors without reply in front of a sparse crowd of 8854. On the evening, Billy Sharp and Luton Shelton both grabbed a brace, with Lee Hendrie scoring the other goal to book a 4th round tie for United.
United’s previous trip to the Globe Arena, was back in 2012 when goals from Tony McMahon and Joe Ironside secured a 2-0 win for Danny Wilson’s side in a pre-season friendly – Click here for a match report from that game
The fixture could see the debut of new loanee David Edgar, who joined the Blades from Birmingham City yesterday.
