Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.
Sheffield United moved back into the Sky Bet Championship play-off places on Friday evening after an entertaining stalemate with ten-man Sheffield Wednesday in the Steel City derby.
Chris Wilder’s men, who had won only once in the league since mid-November, started on the front foot but for all their dominance, they did not test Joe Wildsmith in the Owls’ goal in the first half.
Both Wildsmith and opposition stopper Simon Moore made superb stops in the second half with the latter recovering extremely well to tip Adam Reach’s drive around the post after a collision with Richard Stearman, before Glenn Loovens was sent off for a second booking (64).
The draw is United’s tenth of the season but one that sees them climb into the play-offs, for the evening at least, while Wednesday claim an important point and one that Jos Luhukay will be keen to build on as his spell in charge gets underway.
