But the evening was totally soured by a disgraceful attack on Blades striker Sharp, 36, who was standing watching the celebrations.

Sky Sports captured a yob running full speed at Sharp just seconds after the penalties, sending him crashing him to the floor with a headbutt.

Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom said: ‘there’s a prison sentence there without a doubt’

Furious United manager Paul Heckingbottom said: “It’s assault. We’ve seen one of our players attacked. 

“He’s shook up, bleeding, angry. It’ll be dealt with.”

Heckingbottom added: “We’re seeing things thrown on the pitch and things that are thrown on putting players’ health and safety in danger and nothing’s ever done about it.

“There will be something done about that. We’ve seen what’s happened, we know what’s happened. There’s a prison sentence there without a doubt.

How can you come to a place of work minding your own business and be assaulted in that fashion.
