Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has vowed to keep attacking teams after his side’s remarkable 3-3 draw at Bradford City on Saturday.

United twice took the lead at Valley Parade before being pegged back by Stuart McCall’s side, who then took the lead at 3-2 before Chris Basham touched home a vital equaliser from close range.

The point extended United’s unbeaten run to ten games and took them up to third in the table - just a point behind their Yorkshire rivals.

And Wilder, speaking ahead of Saturday’s clash with MK Dons at Bramall Lane, admitted: “I’m not going to set a team up to defend. We didn’t try and shore it up.

“We have players who can defend but there’s a lot who want to go the other way.

“Both sets of supporters are passionate about their teams.

“They gave their team a lift and ours gave us a massive lift, too.”

United’s U23s, meanwhile, slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Hull City at Bramall Lane last night.

United, who fielded several members of Wilder’s first-team squad including Reece Brown, Chris Hussey, Stefan Scougall and Louis Reed, were unfortunate to go behind when Will Annan converted at the second attempt following Aaron Ramsdale’s save.

Hussey went off with an injury in the second half.
