"Big call to hook John Fleck" ... "Bogle unbelievably good" - Reaction to Sheffield United draw with Brighton

It was a rollercoaster of a game at the Amex where 10-man Sheffield United came away with a point and it could have been a lot better – and a lot worse!

John Lundstram was sent off in the first half after a strong challenge on Joel Veltman but it was the Blades who took the lead through substitute Jayden Bogle in his Premier League debut.

It looked as through United would hold out for a win and they could have stretched their lead only for the otherwose impressive Oliver Burke to fire off target, however Danny Welbeck equalised for the hosts in the 87th minute.

Brighton hit the post and George Baldock cleared the danger in the final minute of a dramatic encounter and one in which Blades fans saw plenty of fight and character.

@a_appletree4 said: “Proud after that performance. That’s all we ask blades, the lads gave absolutely everything! Could have won it, could have lost - outstanding clearance from Baldock! On to Everton now”

@ArtyBianco added: “Thought Bogle was unbelievably good, Burke with a goal behind him has ridiculous potential, Bash is a machine... Amps got though a shift, rest I thought did really well considering. Needed 3 but everyone takes 1 point once we’ve gone down to 10”

@JWiLkOo said: “I am definitely going to have that Burke chance going through my head when I lay in bed later. Doubled our point tally, played well even with 10 men. Jayden Bogle is a baller. Up the blades.”

@phildmoore posted: “Burke and bogle changed the game today! Big call to hook Fleck so early but worked and nearly got all 3 points. Battled till the end with 10 men. MUCH more blades like.”

And @xgigglebubblex said: “Absolutely fantastic today blades. Onwards and upwards now. Gutted we did not take the 3points we deserved it but glad we got a point with 10 men. Lunny tackle never a red and says it all when same ref sent Egan off. Come on blades!!”
