as Mousset sees a shot/cross blocked and Davies can’t keep it in, the noise level has risen inside Bramall Lane as Egan gets his head to Hourihane’s near-post corner but heads it into the Kop
and the hosts are back on level terms through Mousset after good work by McGoldrick to play it into his path, Sharp played it into his path and the Frenchman takes the plaudits with the decisive finish in front of the Kop - 10 minutes to go
Third and final Blades sub
sees David McGoldrick come on for Ndiaye with just over 15 minutes of normal time to go
Just wide from Powell
as he lets fly from outside the box, Olsen was concerned but it went the right side of his post as far as United are concerned...
sees Norwood replaced by Hourihane
sees Mousset come on for Ben Osborn - probably means a 4-4-2 for the Blades now
and the away side go ahead through Brown, who fashions a yard of space past half-challenges from Egan and Norwood and smashes past Olsen and into the far corner to send the away fans barmy behind that goal
Off the line
andalmost a gift for Bogle as Souttar looks to usher the ball out of play and slips over, the full-back’s shot is deflected goalwards and cleared off the line by Wilmot before Stevens smashed a shot just wide on the angle
Sharp races through
onto the ball after good interplay between Ndiaye and Osborn, but the flag eventually goes up for offside - it must have been tight
We’re back underway
for the second half - no changes at the break for the Blades to report
