Result: Late Chris Porter finish earns Sheffield United a draw against Oldham Athletic

Chris Porter's late finish earns Sheffield United a 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic in League One, with both teams' places in the league already assured for another season.

Chris Porter's late finish has earned Sheffield United a 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic in League One this evening, with both teams' places in the league already assured for another season.

Oldham dominated the opening stages of the game and Gary Harkins went close early on when he tested the United keeper with a left-footed shot from the left side of the box.

The hosts took the lead with what was to be their second chance of the match, as Wilson converted a header into the bottom right corner after he latched on to Connor Brown's cross.

Jonson Clarke-Harris almost doubled Oldham's advantage after 30 minutes, but he saw his left-footed shot flash just wide of the post.

United's Jose Baxter wasted a good chance before the break when he lashed his effort from the centre of the box straight at grateful keeper Paul Rachubka.

The visitors could have clawed a goal back after half time, but John Brayford struck his effort at the keeper, who didn't have to move from the centre of his goal.

Harry Maguire was the next Blades player to be wasteful when he headed his attempt wide of the right post, as Oldham sought to hold out through a tense closing period.

The hosts couldn't hold on for all three points, however, as Porter gambled to poke in from Jamie Murphy's cross with just six minutes left to play to leave the final score at 1-1.
