Blades manager Wilder, who revealed his frustration after the game, added: "It's a great result for Derby and a poor one for us.
"It was a tight game between two really good sides and they found their moment..

"Derby were better than us second half. We lost control of the game a little bit but I thought we were really good in the first.

"We were really good and should have found that last bit to go in at half-time up in the game, but we didn't and they came back.

"I've no complaints about the second half and the result overall because if you defend like that and don't put teams to bed the result can go either way."
