Sheffield United Women got back to winning ways with a comfortable 5-0 win away at Coventry United.

Two goals apiece from Jade Pennock and Katie Wilkinson and a first in red and white for Mollie Green saw the Blades blitz their opponents at the end of the first half and start of the second, but it was a game they controlled throughout.

It took Carla Ward's side almost 40 minutes to make the breakthrough but bar the odd Coventry United counter, the Blades were pretty much in control and came close on several occasions to a breakthrough.

Wilkinson in particular saw several chances go a miss before she got on the end of Sophie Barker's cross to put the Blades in the lead before half-time.

That was followed by another three minutes later which put the game beyond Coventry. Pennock saw an effort saved but Green was on hand to fire home her first goal since joining on loan from Manchester United.

The Blades then added three more to their tally in the space of just 10 minutes after the break. First, Pennock was played in by Wilkinson and slotted home into the corner before five minutes later she chested down Veatriki Sarri's cross and fired a half volley into the corner of the net.

Wilkinson then came up with the moment of the match to seal it when her effort from 25 yards flew in off the crossbar to put the gloss on a comfortable performance.

Emily Batty had to be alert down the other end to make several good saves as Coventry looked for a consolation, before Green fired over when presented with a good chance to make it six as the clock ticked down.


Blades: Batty, Barker, Little, Hartley, Pennock (Johnson 76), Cusack (Lord-Mears 60), Wilkinson, Dixon (Fergusson 60), Palmer, Sarri, Green.
Unused subs: Flaherty, Paul.
