Sheffield United’s dreams of a place in the play-offs suffered a major dent yesterday after losing 2-1 away at Birmingham City.

Mark Duffy, the former City midfielder, fired Chris Wilder’s side into an early lead on his return to the Midlands.

But goals from Marc Roberts and Jacques Maghoma turned the game on its head and handed Garry Monk’s men a lifeline in their survival battle.

The result leaves United three points behind sixth-placed Millwall with two matches remaining.
