Sheffield United secured their first Premier League win of the season with a penalty goal from Oliver Norwood 10 minutes into stoppage time, earning them a 2-1 victory at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

As the match neared its conclusion, the visitors’ Fabio Silva conceded a penalty for tripping George Baldock, which Norwood easily converted, sending Bramall Lane into a frenzy.

Sheffield had got the first goal of the match when Cameron Archer picked up a loose ball in midfield, sprinted to the edge of the box and unleashed a shot that struck the crossbar before finding the back of the net in the 72nd minute.

A minute before stoppage time, Jean-Ricner Bellegarde equalised for the visitors, sending in a curler from inside the box that deflected into the net.

Sheffield are bottom of the table with four points, while Wolves are 13th with 12 points.

Norwood smashed in a penalty in the 100th minute to help United to their first Premier League win of the season. There was only one shot on target before the break, with Cunha seeing his effort pushed over by Foderingham before the game burst into life. United struggled to get into the match in the first half but started the second well with Archer curling a shot just over the bar. The former Aston Villa man then broke the deadlock. Toti's clearance was blocked by substitute McAtee, with the ball rolling into the path of Archer. He rushed away from a few defenders and blasted his shot off the bar and into the net. Lemina had a header blocked before Bellegarde netted his first Premier League goal. United couldn't clear the ball away, with Frenchman's swivelling strike deflecting past the goalkeeper. Wolves were pushing for a winner. However, it was the hosts who claimed all three points. Silva fouled Baldock in the box with seconds remaining. Captain Norwood took responsibility and crashed his spot kick off the bar and into the net. Next up, United travel to Brighton in the league, with Wolves hosting Tottenham. That's all for today, goodbye.

CHANCE! Cunha strolls forward with the ball on the right and floats a cross into the middle of the box. Silva is free in the middle but heads the ball wide of the target. The flag goes up for offside, but it was very tight.
