Harry Maguire's first-half brace helped give new Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough a dream start.

The 20-year-old defender twice headed home unmarked in the opening half-hour at Bramall Lane before Ryan Flynn sealed the three points.

Alex substitute Max Clayton grabbed a late consolation as his side slipped into the relegation zone, below the Blades on goal difference.
