Blades v Millwall LIVE from the Lane

to deny Ndiaye after the youngster worked a yard of space and shot left-footed, the resulting corner is comfortably cleared

Millwall should be down to 10 men as George Savile pulls back the breaking John Fleck, right under the ref’s nose. He looks right at it, gives the foul and bottles giving the second yellow. Joke decision. Stonewall yellow card

sees Ollie Norwood replace David McGoldrick, the Blades were looking light in midfield after MGW’s red card so can see the sense in that, Ndiaye will now support Sharp you’d imagine

as Jayden Bogle limps off to compound United’s misery - more than half an hour to play here with 10 men

and Gibbs-White’s evening is over prematurely as he is shown a second yellow for simulation, after going down in the Millwall box - too difficult to see in real time if there was contact as he went down under Malone’s challenge but ref Donohue booked him for the second time and he’s off

So close for the Blades

as a lovely move involving Gibbs-White and Ndiaye ends with Osborn feeding Stevens and his cross is drilled in for Mcgoldrick in the middle, who somehow puts his effort over the bar from close range on the stretch - the Blades have their tails up though

as Enda Stevens goes down injured, he stays down and the medical staff are called on to help him

We’re back underway

with no changes for either side at the break, and an early signal of intent from the Blades as Gibbs-White curls one wide of goal

and the Blades go in level despite looking very off the pace for most of that first half - the change to bring Ndiaye on did inject a little bit more pace and momentum for the hosts and he’s stayed out there at half-time to get a better warm-up after coming on in the first half. First 45 player ratings...

and Sharp makes no mistake from the spot, sending the ‘keeper the wrong way after Malone fouled Fleck - no complaints about the decision from the Millwall man and the Blades are back on level terms here
