Under 18s 4-0 Wednesday - report

Sheffield United Under 18s comfortably breezed past Sheffield Wednesday in the under 18s derby on Tuesday afternoon.

A resounding 4-0 victory topped off a complete performance where the Blades were never really under threat, with Del Geary's side leading 3-0 by half-time.

Off the back of Saturday's hard-fought win against Leeds United, the Blades made a much quicker start this time around and were on the front foot from the off.

It took just over 10 minutes for the first goal to come as Daniel Jebbison positioned himself in the right place to slot home after Harry Boyes saw an effort from range deflected into the path of the Blades number nine.

Boyes, ever-present in getting forward when he could, saw an effort saved soon after and the lead was doubled after half an hour when Kyron Gordon flicked home Zak Brunt's corner at the near post.

Jebbison came close to another but he just couldn't stretch far enough to connect with Brunt's cross, but the Blades were presented with the perfect chance to seal things when Leo Gaxha was tripped inside the box in stoppage time.

Gaxha himself stepped up and fired low past the goalkeeper to cap a superb first half. It was more of the same after the break but Sam Kelly did have to be alert to tip away a curling effort, but it was a quiet afternoon all told for the Blades keeper.

Brunt fired wide before another brilliant flowing move led to Brunt and Boyes combining to find Gaxha who promptly smashed home his second of the game and the team's fourth.

There were chances for more as substitute Sam Ackroyd was twice denied by the goalkeeper but it still ended in comfortable victory for the youngsters after a superb performance.

Blades: S. Kelly, To. Williams, Boyes, Neal, Gordon, Gomis (Cullinan 71), Th. Williams, Maguire, Jebbison (Ackroyd 71), Brunt (Ayari 67), Gaxha.
Unused: Hiddlestone, Viggars.
