CENTRAL midfielder Chris Lines is adamant Wednesday should have beaten United in the Steel City derby.

On Twitter, Lines posted: “Great comeback today!! Shows the spirit we have...deserved all 3 points but we’ll take the point...dominated for long periods.”

Lines, who recently had a baby girl, also hailed Wednesday’s away following. More than 4,000 supporters packed into Bramall Lane to cheer on Megson’s men.

“Fans were brilliant!! Amazing feeling at the end and also after both goals!! Onwards and upwards we go,” he added.

Danny Batth, on-loan from Wolves, summed up the occasion, saying: “What a game!!!”

Worksop-born Liam Palmer, who was included on the substitutes bench having returned from international duty with Scotland, posted: “Great comeback !!! Deserved more.”

Former England captain and ex-Yorkshire batsman Michael Vaughan was delighted with Wednesday’s recovery. He said he was impressed with United centre-back Harry Maguire and tipped him to achieve big things in the sport.

“What a comeback by the owls.. Great support behind the goal.. Harry Maguire for United was outstanding for an 18 yr old.. Big future,” said the die-hard Wednesday fan.

Injured Blades left-back Andy Taylor admits he was “really disappointed” United could not hang on after forging 2-0 ahead. Taylor, who also paid tribute to United’s “brilliant” supporters, tweeted: “Really disappointed that we couldn’t see out the game”
