United thought they had sealed a point when Billy Sharp equalised in injury time, before Levi Colwill tapped home from close range shortly after to continue Slavisa Jokanovic’s wait for a league win as Blades boss.

and it’s that man Billy Sharp again who gets it, latching onto McBurnie’s header to finish on his left foot and level the scores with the first league goal of the season - Bramall Lane erupts

to be added on as Norwood’s set-piece flies out of play without finding its way onto a Blades head

Chance for the Blades

as McBurnie’s header falls perfectly for Sharp on the volley as he swivels, he connects with it beautifully but it’s straight at Nicholls and he barely had to move to clutch it to his stomach

Norrington-Davies and Fleck off, McGoldrick and Osborn on - both were being readied before that Town opener, I wonder if it changed the decision on who to take off? Osborn goes to wing-back, McGoldrick will play in the No.10 role behind Sharp and McBurnie

and it’s Koroma who gets it, finishing at the second attempt after his first was saved by the legs of Foderingham - a pass from the right cut the United defence open and Koroma was streaking down the middle virtually unmarked. Foderingham saved his first shot with his legs but he made no mistake with the second and United trail again with 15 minutes to go

Let-off for the Blades

as Norwood gives the ball away in a poor area to Campbell, Davies forces him wide before Norrington-Davies bundles him over in the box - on first glance, you’ve seen them given but nothing was, and the chance went begging for the visitors

Another very good crowd

at Bramall Lane this afternoon - sounded like 38,000 when United had that spell of pressure and a number of shots in succession earlier this half

Chance for Huddersfield

as Berge loses possession in a dangerous area and Koroma takes it on himself to shoot, but he drags it wide of Foderingham’s post - Berge holds his hands up to apologise

worked by Norwood and Baldock sees the latter fire a cross across goal, it eludes everyone and Fleck just can’t keep it in play on the far side
