- Blades looking for their first win of the season
- Sander Berge is out and Oli McBurnie isn’t fit enough to make the squad
- Blades make two changes, John Lundstram and Rhian Brewster starting
- Berge and Oli Burke drop out
- John Lundstram saw red for a challenge on Veltman
- Jayden Bogle then gave the Blades the lead after coming off the bench
- Danny Welbeck equalises
That’s when Brighton got the leveller. Heartbreaking
Welbeck equalises for Brighton
Chance for Burke!
Osborn breaks and feeds the striker whose first touch takes him a little too far wide and his shot flies over. Big opportunity
Phew... that’s a let off
Ramsdale comes out to meet a cross and misses it completely but Connelly is distracted at least and heads wide. The Blades keep is receiving treatment after an awkward fall
United can’t get out
Backs to the wall here at the Amex. Blades defending well but Brighton keep on coming back at them
March has a shot...
And it takes a deflection and goes out for a corner which Ramsdale eventually gathers. This is going to be a long final 15 or so minutes
15 minutes to go
How are your nerves?
