Scunthorpe 1-1 Sheffield Utd

Scunthorpe 1-1 Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United battled back to draw against 10-man Scunthorpe.

Having seen Andy Barcham sent off for a lunge on Michael Doyle, the Iron went in front when Chris Dagnall ran from halfway and curled in from 18 yards.

After a bright start to the second half, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing almost drew the visitors level but his shot cannoned back off the post.

Substitute Ched Evans levelled with a superb overhead kick from Matthew Lowton's cross.

The result means that the Iron are still to record their first league win this season and sit in 17th.

Sheffield United are top of the table, ahead of Charlton on goal difference.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Scunthorpe United manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I thought we were excellent and in the first half when you consider the opposition.

"It was a great goal (we scored) and I thought we should have been more up.

"A red card used to be a career threatening injury, now it's a touch.

"If it's a tackle it's a yellow card, especially when after the same sort of challenge (the Sheffield United player) gets a yellow."

Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"At certain times we had some good chances to score and go on to win the game

"We can't be too disappointed, we're coming away from Scunthorpe with a point and keep our run going.

"Don't take away how difficult it is here to play football."
