Breaking; Sheffield United boss gives update on the horro injury.

Chris Basham’s ankle injury, which required the Sheffield United captain to be taken away on a stretcher during the Blades’ 3-1 loss to Fulham, was described as “horrific” by Paul Heckingbottom.

At Craven Cottage, Basham seemed to break his ankle during the first half and needed intensive medical care before the game could continue.

Heckingbottom, the manager of United, acknowledged that the injury will affect their season.


Nobody wants to ever see that. I’ve been a part of it on the field with a teammate, but it’s horrible when it’s one of your own guys,” Heckingbottom added.

We tried to get points for Basham in the second half while keeping him in mind.

It’s horrific, it’s awful. Of course it will have an impact on us because of the season.

The Yorkshire club has just one point on the board and is currently in last place in the Premier League while still looking for their first victory of the year.

Heckingbottom issued a challenge to his team, warning them that no one would feel sorry for them if they continued to lose, making it four games in a row.

We are where we deserve to be, and you receive what you deserve, he continued. “We are down there because the only ones who can get ourselves out of it are us. To turn such opportunities into opportunities for profit, we must struggle and wait for them.

Nobody will feel sorry for us.


The three players we lost this week or the fact that we gave up and lost points won’t be a concern for our upcoming opponents. Every game must be enjoyable for us. When competing against great players, you must appreciate the challenge, even if other players are having a difficult time.

We battled so hard to get here, and now we want to compete.

Willian turned the clock back in helping Fulham win.

The 35-year-old Brazilian put on an incredible performance, securing his team’s victory with a third goal after Bobby De Cordova-Reid’s score and a regrettable own goal by Wes Foderingham.

Antonee Robinson also scored United’s lone goal by putting the ball in his own net. Willian was sluggish on Monday, but he tried to make up for it with rushing rushes forward. One of these almost set up Vinicius, but Foderingham saved his own shot after 19 minutes when it was inside the box.

In addition to being outmatched physically, Sheffield United seldom ever made significant inroads into Fulham territory, and their first-half play left one wondering where their chances would come from.

Through De Cordova-Rei, the Cottagers deservedly gained the upper hand.

The Jamaican international was promptly put through by a split-second ball from Pereira, and he maintained his composure to beat Foderingham. However, Sheffield United produced an own goal in the 67th minute to tie the game at 1-1. Issa Diop of Fulham was hurt, but the Blades wouldn’t kick the ball away, allowing Yasser Larouci’s dangerous cross to deflect off Antonee Robinson and into his own goal.

Substitute When his long shot resulted in an own goal and handed Fulham the lead, Tom Cairney saved his team. In the eighth minute of stoppage time, Willian scored the winning goal with a strong shot.

Leno, Castagne, Diop (Bassey 71), Ream, Robinson, Iwobi (Reed 79), Joao Palhinha, Reid (Wilson 78), Vinicius (Rodrigo Muniz 78), and Willian are the Fulham starting lineup. Unused subs: Lukic, Jimenez, Rodak, and Jimenez

Foderingham, Basham, Ahmedhodzic, Trusty, Bogle, V Souza, Norwood, Hamer (McAtee 66), Thomas (Larouci 66), McBurnie, and Archer (Brewster 79) are the players for Sheffield United. A. Davies, Fleck, Traore, Slimane, and Seriki were inactive subs.
