‘Beautiful Just Beautiful’ ‘What A Hit’ – Sheffield United Fans On Twitter React To Duffy’s Rocket Against Rotherham

Sheffield United midfielder Mark Duffy sealed victory against Rotherham on Saturday with a sublime strike from outside the box.

The 33-year-old fired a shot into the top right-hand corner to secure the three points for the Blades:

Fans thought it was a perfectly struck long-range effort from Duffy:

There was some dispute, however, over whether it was a half-volley:

Whatever the case, Duffy’s goal clinched another win for Chris Wilder’s side, keeping them on the coattails of Leeds and Norwich in the race for automatic promotion.

West Brom’s draw against bottom side Ipswich at the weekend means the top three have effectively separated themselves from the pack.

With a seven-point gap to fourth, United have likely secured a playoff spot already, but supporters will only be thinking about a top two finish.

The Blades have Brentford at home tomorrow night before a crucial game against Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
