Sheffield United needed the win against Barnsley at Bramall Lane to keep alive their hopes of sneaking into the play-offs, but they had to settle for a point after a 0-0 derby draw.

With that surely went United's chance of a top six spot, but the visitors are still well placed to make it.

The Star's James Shield reflecting on the game said: "It was an absolutely breathless derby, good old fashioned blood and thunder. It was almost like rolling back 10 or 15 years in English football. Tackles aplenty, a lot of industry, a lot of endevour, but the one thing lacking, certainly from a Sheffield United's perspective, was a little bit of invention in the final third."
