Sheffield United 1-1 Swindon Town

Sheffield United slipped down to eighth in League One after being held to a draw by Swindon Town.

The Blades went ahead when Jordan Turnbull fouled Paul Coutts in the area and Billy Sharp netted the penalty.

United could have doubled their advantage but Sharp's header went wide, and Swindon then levelled through Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill.

Jonathan Obika's long-range shot for the Robins was saved by George Long to keep the scores level.
