Have your say

Sheffield United will be happy to have put daylight between themselves and the rest of the League One chasing pack after a 'crazy day of football' at Rochdale.

That's the view of James Shield, our Sheffield United writer, after Chris Wilder's side twice surrendered the lead and had to settle for a point from the 3-3 draw.

"It was a crazy, strange old day of football," James said in our video chat.

"And at the end of it, United actually finished further clear of third than when they started.

"There was frustration and even anger, Daniel Lafferty revealed afterwards, about the manner of the goals conceded but I think he's being slightly harsh, and surely they'll be happy to have put a bit more daylight between themselves and Scunthorpe, who dropped to third after their defeat to Fleetwood this afternoon."
