Morgan Gibbs-White’s fine season continued at the weekend, with the midfielder helping himself to two goals and an assist for Sheffield United against Swansea City.
The Wolves star was in fine fettle for the Blades, as Paul Heckingbottom’s side kept their brilliant Championship run going.
It’s now eight games without defeat, with the club having won four of those.
Going back a bit further, United have now only lost one league game in their last 14.
Wales Online noted that Gibb-White was the chief creator yesterday and ran riot at Bramall Lane.
He actually opened the scoring for United, latching onto a fantastic lofted through ball from Oliver Norwood before coolly finishing at the near post.
After a George Baldock cracker, Gibbs-White then slipped in Billy Sharp for 3-0.
Gibbs-White then popped up to notch his second of the game, again finishing coolly from inside the area into the far corner this time.
The result has taken Sheffield United into the play-off places.
It will take a huge effort to achieve promotion automatically, with second-placed Bournemouth currently eight points ahead with a game in hand.
Gibbs-White’s goals and assist means he is now up to eight and five respectively for the season.
It’s been a wonderful spell for the 22-year-old, who has come in for big plaudits following yesterday’s game.
Many fans and some players have commented on his latest Instagram post, including Aston Villa defender Kortney Hause, who said ‘This guy’s underrated man‼️’.
Gibbs-White shining as Sheffield United push for promotion
Gibbs-White appears to have put the frustration of his recent injury firmly behind him.
It was a brilliant performance from him yesterday and Swansea had not solution for him.
It is fantastic to see Gibbs-White in this kind of form and playing a significant role in Sheffield United’s bid to achieve promotion.
With every game he plays well, he puts himself more into the conversation about a possible starting role for the Wolves first-team next season.
Bruno Lage never wanted him to depart, and he will be delighted with how he is getting on.
