Follow all the action below following the conclusion of Sheffield United vs Wolves:
90+3 mins: Wolves are trying to run down the clock. Passing the ball around and holding it up. The Blades win the ball and whip it quickly into the box from the right. McBurnie wins the header and Saiss heads it off the line!
90 mins: Another Traore shot from range is blocked by O’Connell and Wolves win another corner. There will be five minutes of stoppage time.
88 mins: Wolves have all their men defending deep. They want this clean sheet. Fleck sends a corner in for the Blades and Egan wins the header but he puts it wide.
86 mins: Joao Moutinho’s night is over new signing Vitinha makes an appearance for Wolves.
84 mins: Adama Traore does really well to keep the ball in play on the left wing and he counter attacks. He sprints forward with the ball and shoots, Egan is back in position and deflects it out for a corner.
Moutinho sends the corner to the near post, Jimenez makes the run and whips his head onto the ball but his shot hits the post and goes wide.
81 mins: Fleck sends the ball into Egan who keeps it alive. It comes to Sharp who scores but the whistle had already gone for a foul from McGoldrick.
78 mins: Neves is on for Wolves, replacing Podence. Chris Wilder has also brought on Berge. The Blades are having some success down the right, Wolves can’t win the ball back, Lundstram crosses in the ball and wins a corner.
75 mins: Sheffield United work the ball down the right wing, Lundstram passes it to McGoldrick on the edge of the box. He shoots but it gets blocked and Wolves break with Traore.
He’s moved into the middle and Jimenez goes with him, Traore goes it alone and drills one from range but isn’t able to keep the ball down and it goes wide.
72 mins: McGoldrick is on for the Blades. Baldock is the man that’s gone off I think.
69 mins: Oskar Buur makes his Premier League debut for Wolves as he replaces Pedro Neto.
This should be game over. The ball is played up to Jimenez who has the time to turn and run at the penalty area. He lays it off to his left where Saiss is sprinting forward. Saiss shoots and Ramsdale tips the ball onto the post. It flies quickly back to Jimenez who puts it past the post.
