Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock was delighted with his players after their win.
Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock declared his side deserved their victory over Sunderland at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night.
The Yorkshire club dominated proceedings and always looked likely to take the spoils.
Paul Shaw scored the only goal of the game, coolly slotting the ball home mid-way through the second half.
The goal was Shaw's first of the season for The Blades and clearly delighted his manager.
"Mart Poom made some great saves in the game but Shaw took his goal well," Warnock told the club's official site.
"It was a great finish and one that deserved to win the game.
"The lads were a credit and I would not have complained if we lost or drew the match because I could not fault their effort.
"I even asked them to score first so I can remember what it feels like and fortunately we did that," he added.
The result was marred by an injury to Chris Morgan and the dismissal of Andy Gray, who was red-carded along with Sunderland's Gary Breen for violent conduct.
"It seems to be one thing after another in terms of Morgan and Gray," was the only comment Warnock would make on the two incidents.
