MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Liam Lind­say

Scot­tish de­fender was su­per for Barns­ley, mak­ing timely in­ter­ven­tions, adapt­ing when Billy Sharp en­tered the fray and prov­ing cru­cial in the sec­ond pe­riod.

Bad day: Lee Evans

Suf­fered ig­nominy of be­ing with­drawn af­ter 39 min­utes. Wales mid­fielder had not done much wrong but Blades needed to change sys­tem, bring­ing on Billy Sharp.

Key mo­ment: ‘91st-minute’

John Fleck lays on a glo­ri­ous chance for Billy Sharp to level but he strikes over. An­other missed chance, the story of United’s day.

Ref watch: Scott Dun­can

Yel­low card on Lind­say for cru­cial tackle on a break­away David Brookes in first-half stop­page-time looked par­tic­u­larly harsh.

Verdict

A draw would have been a fair re­sult but Barns­ley need more than that and, es­sen­tially, that’s what showed in the end.
