OLI McBURNIE went from being Sheffield United’s matchwinner over West Ham on Friday to cheering on former club Swansea at Cardiff yesterday.
McBurnie (pictured above), who left for £20million in the summer, saw the visitors’ Bersant Celina and Cardiff’s Callum Paterson both hit the woodwork in a 0-0 draw.
Jacks boss Steve Cooper said: ‘Stop-start game, a lot of aerial balls — it’s a better point for them than us, that’s for sure.’

Locked out Millers hit the top
KYLE VASSELL scored twice as Rotherham went top with a 3-1 win at Oxford. Boss Paul Warne said: ‘The stadium was locked when we got here, we couldn’t get in, so that was my team-talk done.’ The Millers took over at the top after Wycombe crashed 4-0 at Sunderland.
