Shearer delighted for Sharp after Sheffield Utd equaliser

Former England captain Alan Shearer was delighted for Billy Sharp after his equaliser earned Sheffield United a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth.

Sharp came off the bench to cancel out Chris Mepham's opener.

Shearer said of Sharp's goal: “They were chasing the game and who better to bring on than Mr Sheffield United himself. Well worked free kick, determined not to sling it into the box. They got a little bit of luck with the ricochet but he's there and he finished it off and what a moment for him."

The former Newcastle forward, who Sharp has previously described as a boyhood hero, added: “No one has scored more goals in English football than him since 2005, absolutely fantastic and what a moment for him."
