After the game kicked off at 1.25pm to celebrate the Blades' 125th birthday, Henry ruined the party when he saw his 13th-minute cross go straight in to open the scoring, prior to a close-range finish from fellow midfielder Edwards early in the second half.

Blades midfielder Stefan Scougall forced a fine save from Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme early on before Henry's out-swinging delivery from the right evaded Edwards and United keeper Mark Howard to creep in at the far post.

Henry then hit a curling effort against the right-hand upright while United defender John Brayford had a close-range attempt cleared off the line by Richard Stearman on the stroke of half-time.

Edwards emphatically converted Henry's deflected right-wing centre into the bottom right-hand corner in the 53rd minute before striker Leon Clarke wasted a golden chance to put the result beyond doubt when he shot over with only Howard to beat.

Later in the afternoon, second-placed Brentford kept up the pressure with a 3-1 win over Coventry.
