REVERSE FIXTURE | Sheffield United

30 March 2016

Take a look back at what happened when we faced Sheffield United earlier this season.

Ahead of tonight’s meeting, we remind ourselves of how the Blues got on when they faced the Sheffield United back in November.

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane as Southend raced into a two-goal lead before the Blades pulled it back.

A first-half flurry from Ryan Leonard and Jack Payne gave Southend the lead, before Jose Baxter's second goal in three league games and Neill Collins' prodded effort drew the home side level.

Southend took the lead in spectacular style in the 29th minute. David Worrall's corner deflected to Leonard, who fired into the top-right of the goal from 35 yards.

Watch the highlights from the November meeting below:
