Here’s how fans reacted afterwards...

@SufcLee - Yes Defence would make a pub team embarrassed but no one can be critical of the spirit 5-5 (7-6) from 3-0 (5-1) down #twitterblades@bensonboy82 - Don’t want clough out but I wanna see a settled 11. with players in their own positions. #twitterblades

@TomBennett__ - It does just go to show what our forward line can do if there allowed to! #TwitterBlades

@SavChamberlain - Brilliant support, ten mins in never expected it to finish a draw, frustrating to get so close, onwards and upwards... #twitterblades #sufc

@tharshansufc - You can’t deny we’re almost there. We just need two experienced centre backs, who are actually centre backs.. #sufc #twitterblades

@Athersstylist - Interesting summer ahead. Wouldn’t press panic button myself but a clear transfer plan and done early needed #sufc #twitterblades

@UrbaneFoxx - Players proven they want to play for Clough. Back him with quality defenders next year - not top by January; re-consider. #twitterblades

@PaulHolmshaw - Can’t help but think that with the strength of Collins at CB, Doyle in the middle & Adams on earlier we’d be in the final #twitterblades

@ChrisCowie85 - It’s going to take a couple of months to recharge the batteries and come back again next season. A lot of changes are needed. #SUFC

@_joannelisa - Is it possible to absolutely love and absolutely hate the same thing at once? #sufc

@RefereeKarl - I’d personally see Warnock back! Unreal effort tonight, but defending simply not good enough! #CloughOut #SUFC #TwitterBlades

@jack_broad - Embarrassing defending, but then gave us hope which only made it worse! Not enthusiastic about another season in LG 1 #sufc #twitterblades

@monkeynutz75 - No matter who is in charge we always bottle it when it matters. Three failed play off campaigns out of three in L1 is embarrassing.

@ashc82 - I don’t like us being in league 1 but some hope for next year. Reed, Adams, James Wallace, Done, we haven’t seen their full potential
