Sheff Utd   1 - 1   Derby

Sheff Utd 1-1 Derby

Sheff Utd 1-1 Derby

Lee Williamson scored a controversial late equaliser for Sheffield United to deny Derby at Bramall Lane.

Robbie Savage looked to have secured back-to-back league wins for the Rams when he swept in a low right-footed shot from outside the penalty area.

But Blades midfielder Williamson pulled a goal back at the death, slamming home a Mark Yeates cross into the corner.

It was a controversial leveller - coming while Derby boss Nigel Clough was attempting to send on a substitute.


Derby manager Nigel Clough:

"A couple of things cost us, and one of them was failing to get that second goal.

"We were comfortable and should have been two or three up by the time that went in.

"We had plenty of opportunities to begin with and should have been out of sight. But, overall, I thought our performance was excellent."

Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell:

"I've got to give the lads credit for finishing well. The crowd weren't happy but courage manifests itself in many ways.

"It might be going in for a header or simply just wanting to get the ball.

"We've got far too many people coming and going through the football club at the moment so it's difficult to get any sort of cohesion."
