Sheffield travelled to bottom team York University hoping to kickstart their season after some disappointing recent results.
Despite York only having picked up three points all season, Sheffield knew from their previous game the university side would be tenacious and hard working and wouldn't roll over easily. So it proved in the first half, despite Sheffield taking an early lead through an unlikely source. Defender Nick Wilson notched his first goal for the club when he deflected a long Jack Rodgers ball past the keeper. This proved to be the only goal of the first half. Sheffield came close to extending their lead through a few good crosses but were unable to apply a finishing touch. Their rhythm was disrupted through a number of green cards and trying to beat players rather than give a quick pass on too many occasions. York were unable to take advantage, as Sheffield defended well throughout with keeper James Graham not having to make a save all game.
The second half saw Sheffield step up a level as they improved their ball pace and looked to keep possession. This was rewarded when Josh Tills tapped in from a cross to double the lead. A quickfire Tim Baker double made the game safe as Sheffield turned on the style. Craig Hilton got on the scoresheet from a short corner when some sluggish defending allowed him the time and space to pick his spot and fire into the corner from the top of the D. Kaden Nunn was denied a spectacular reverse stick volley goal by a fine save. However the young striker got on the scoresheet minutes later when he finished well from a cross across the face of the goal.
