United twice led in the game but were pegged back by the last touch of the game, when Jayden Stockley rose highest to head home a corner and earn his side a draw.

This is what Blades fans on Twitter made of the game.

@CallumHobson__: For the people who are for some reason angry... It was pre season and half the team was missing

@MiserableBlader: Disappointed not to win but in a sick fans sort of way relieved we have not kept a clean sheet. Great believer in the law of averages. To me four clean sheets in pre-season pointed to four goals for #Wolves in the first game! Well it happened at @TheGillsFC first day

@utd109: Better to get 1 point than 0 points from the game.

@RichardjsS14: Decent game, to say it was a pre-season. Fully committed.

@_joshchapman98: Disappointing goal to concede that. Looked like Foderingham was impeded but got to mark players better than that. Slightly sour way to end what’s been a decent pre-season.

@DemBladesDavid: This game has had a feel of a cup quarter final - I even feel a bit disappointed! Very competitive to say it's a friendly. The intensity should only help fitness levels

@glavey: Kean Bryan been weirdly good in this match. Osborn MOTM for me

@KopFinest: Lunny cracked a smile after scoring today, a different reaction to his goal at Southampton. Hmmmm...
