Leon Clarke put United ahead with his 18th goal of the season, but Millwall equalised almost straight from kick-off to extend their unbeaten run - the Lions last tasted defeat on New Year’s Day in the league.

“It’s very very naive of us not to think that when the ball comes to their left centre-half, it’s going anywhere else but down the throat of our centre halves,” Chris Wilder said.

“I’ve got to say it’s a great finish and it puts a little bit of a pin in our balloon. You don’t go on the run that they’re on without having something about you and we knew that.

“They were playing with a lot of confidence which the run brings and they’re a tough team to beat. They get a lot of people behind the ball.

“Going the other way, the front two are a real good pair and they’ve got some good players. They’ve recruited well and they’re playing with a freedom and a confidence so we always knew it was going to be a real difficult game.

“But we believed that if we played the way that we can, that we can win this game and obviously sticking our noses in front in a tight game after 70-odd minutes, was the position we wanted to be in.”
