Chris Wilder joked that Sheffield United’s backroom staff would have a wallpapering job at Bramall Lane on Monday morning after their efforts helped the Blades return from Norwich City’s Carrow Road with a well-earned point.

City’s decision to paint the walls of the away dressing room at Carrow Road pink, ostensibly to lower testosterone levels in the opposition before kick off, received much publicity when it was revealed at the start of the season but United left nothing to chance, with kit men Carl Hopwood and Adam Geelan tasked with papering over the pink walls.

Boss Chris Wilder described their efforts as “fantastic” afterwards, joking: “I fined the boys if I saw any pink in there before the game so they must have been in there since 8am!

“They might get a job at Bramall Lane on Monday morning, painting and papering the dressing room. But every club goes about things in their own way - we have our way and Norwich have theirs.”
