Sheffield Into FA Cup Semifinals

Second half goals from Ryan Flynn and John Brayford handed Sheffield United a 2-0 win over Charlton Athletic in an FA Cup quarterfinal match at Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Sheffield United created the first chance on goal in the eighth minute when Neil Collins met a corner-kick, but his header went inches over the crossbar.

On the half hour mark Charlton created their first chance when Marcus Tudgay let fly with a powerful shot from the edge of the box, but saw his effort well-saved by the keeper.

Nine minutes later Sheffield United had the ball in the back of the net courtesy of Conor Coady, but he was ruled off-sides, wrongly so.

The half ended 0-0.

The second 45 saw Sheffield United start to take the ascendancy and came close to breaking the deadlock six minutes after the restart when Harry Maguire pounced on a loose ball inside the box after a corner-kick, but his effort from close range struck the side-netting.

In the 65th minute Sheffield United finally made their pressure tell as Ryan Flynn perfectly guided home a curling cross from Jose Baxter, 1-0.

Two minutes later and Sheffield United doubled their lead when a deflected John Brayford shot from the edge of the box found its way into the back of the net, 2-0.

In the 76th minute Sheffield United were unlucky not to find their third when Baxter struck the woodwork with an effort from just inside the box.

Charlton tried to find their way back into the match, but Sheffield held on for a comfortable win to seal their place in the semifinals of the competition.
