Sheffield United have picked up the first points of the new League One season courtesy of a narrow 2-1 win over Notts County at Bramall Lane.
The match marked the beginning of the Football League's 125th anniversary and David Weir's first in charge of the Blades, who were soon in the ascendency when Magpies defender Gary Liddle was sent off after just 13 minutes.
Liddle, who usually operates as a midfielder, was filling in at centre-back and caught the surging Kevin McDonald with a high tackle, which referee Keith Stroud deemed to be a red-card offence.
