Peterborough Done by another Matt finish as Blades notch fourth straight win

Matt Done's first-half goal clinched Sheffield United a 1-0 victory over Peterborough and a fourth straight league win.

Striker Done scored for the second successive match and his 13th-minute effort lifted the Blades into the top six.

The hosts were on top in the early stages of the game with Billy Sharp putting a first-time effort off-target, Daniel Lafferty seeing his drive deflected wide and Done forcing visiting goalkeeper Luke McGee into a superb reflex save.

Done struck the game's only goal, steering the ball past McGee at the near post after meeting Kieron Freeman's low cross.

Peterborough's Chris Forrester then had a long-range shot deflected wide while Blades goalkeeper Simon Moore produced a fine save down to his right to keep out Paul Taylor's shot on the turn.

Blades substitute Stefan Scougall went close to scoring a second goal for the home side in the second half when his 20-yard effort was palmed wide by McGee.

Moore protected his side's lead when he pulled off a great save to keep out Gwion Edwards' close-range shot and also stopped efforts from Forrester and Marcus Maddison as Peterborough chased an equaliser.
