Goals from Shaun Miller and Harry Maguire had put the Blades in control of the match at Bramall Lane, but the away side fought back before half-time through Mark Ellis and Mathias Pogba. Dalla Valle then set up Chuks Aneke to give Alex the lead, before United found an equaliser through Nick Blackman.

Neil Etheridge made a string of top saves against second placed Port Vale but Bristol Rovers still crashed to a 4-0 defeat at Vale Park.
