Sheffield United won for the first time in six months by taking the lead in a five-goal thriller at Bristol Rovers’ FA Cup fourth round

The bottom of the Premier League led as Lys Mousset’s header hit the crossbar and Rover’s keeper Joe Day hit

A towering header from Alfie Kilgour gave League One Rovers the lead at halftime – but United substitute Oliver Burke ran clear and scored on the hour

The three goals in the second half came in just four minutes Burke’s calm end and Ehmer’s equalizer, followed by Bogle’s run into the area in time to score his second goal in four games

A sad run of form ended for United – their last win in a competitive game last season on Nov. July was when they defeated Chelsea in the Premier League

The winless run lasted a total of 21 games, making Wilders 100 Victory as a manager will bring much-needed relief

His side are still clean sheets in 22 games – their longest run without a shutout since 1998 – but his claim that this game was “huge because of the situation we are in” angered his players, when they started quickly

Mousset skilfully jumped against the crossbar and caused Day to score his unfortunate own goal. Despite Kilgour’s powerful equalizer, Wilder’s side were in the lead, ruling out a second Mousset goal for a controversial foul by John Egan

John Lundstram saw a shot that was overturned after half-time, but six minutes after his move, Burke raced clear and slid on the near post – his first goal for the club since moving from West Bromwich Albion in September

Ehmer turned home, Luke Leahy’s post near the post, but Burke’s clever dummy allowed Bogle to coolly roll in from six meters

Burke hit the post and the formidable Ben Osborn almost scored a fourth on a day that Wilder’s side scored 22 shots and more than deserved that important win and spot in Monday’s fourth-round draw / p>

Sheffield United will host Newcastle in the Premier League on Tuesday (18:00 GMT) and Bristol Rovers will play AFC Wimbledon in the EFL Trophy that same evening (19:00)
