One year on: Sheffield United 2-3 Bristol City

City twice fought from behind to win this five-goal thriller, thanks to an Andreas Weimann hat-trick at Bramall Lane on March 30th 2019.

Blades captain Billy Sharp had headed the hosts into an early lead in sun-soaked South Yorkshire but Weimann levelled the tie with a looping header and Josh Brownhill’s second-half free kick struck the post before Scott Hogan restored the Blades’ lead.

However, City were level again when Kasey Palmer picked out the run of Weimann and the forward completed the scores with a calm finish seven minutes from the end of regular time.

Korey Smith also featured in this, his comeback game, to mark his first competitive action for seven months.

What they said:

Andreas Weimann:

"I was looking forward to the match obviously, to try and get a good result, but I didn’t think I was going to score a hat-trick!

"It was amazing – the third goal I didn’t know what was going on, scoring a hat-trick and having all the boys running after me it was just crazy, great scenes."

“It was a very good game, with both teams trying to attack and I think we played really well.

“We conceded early but we bounced straight back. We really put the pressure on and deserved to be at 1-1 at half-time.

“Second-half again we played really well, our formation worked really well against them.

“Going 2-1 down was a blow but it shows the character we’ve got in this group to come back and win the game."

Lee Johnson:

"The fans were our 12th man today. They believed and the players believed and I thought the relationship between the fans and the players was excellent today. The supporters responded to good play and there was a lot of it today from our team and the players responded back with the energy, desire and commitment to come back.

“I’m strangely calm though I wasn’t calm when we scored the winner! I was halfway up the line going for a knee slide but I decided not to in case I burnt my knees.

“We are delighted for him to score his first hat-trick but only that it was the way he worked his socks off and tracked back and raced forward. He has excellent movement.”
