League One play-off rivals Sheffield United and Chesterfield took a share of the points as they played out a draw at Bramall Lane.

Tendayi Darikwa's ball across the face of goal threatened to put the visitors in front early into proceedings.

The hosts took the lead when Marc McNulty latched onto John Brayford's cross to fire the ball home.

But Ian Evatt restored parity after the break when he linked up with Daniel Jones to nod home from close range.
