Result: Sheffield United, Millwall play out thrilling draw

Sheffield United and Millwall play out an entertaining 1-1 draw in Saturday's Championship encounter at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United and Millwall have played out an entertaining 1-1 draw in Saturday's Championship clash at Bramall Lane.

The game got off to a cagey start, the first chance coming on eight minutes when Lee Evans fired just wide of the Lions' post from outside the area.

John Fleck then forced a save from Jordan Archer on the quarter-hour mark, while at the other end, Steve Morison connected with a corner kick but could not direct his header on target.

Both sides traded blows throughout the first half, Blades defender Richard Stearman forcing a smart save from Archer just before the whistle, but neither could break the deadlock by half time.

The breakthrough came on 74 minutes when Noel Clarke headed home from close range following a delivery across the face of goal.

However, United's lead lasted for just two minutes before Morison volleyed past Jamal Blackman from Jake Cooper's forward ball to level proceedings.

The latter stages of the game saw both teams frantically press for a winner, but both goalkeepers were on form as the final whistle heralded a share of the spoils in South Yorkshire.

The draw moves Millwall up to fifth in the table, while the Blades are eighth, two points outside the playoffs.
