Oldham Athletic 1-1 Sheffield United

Sheffield United were restricted to a point at 10-man Oldham.

The Latics took the lead when Mike Jones' corner was flicked into the path of Danny Philliskirk who headed in at the back post.

Forward Matty Done equalised for the Blades with a crisply struck effort into the top corner.

After Oldham lost Jonathan Burn for a second bookable offence, Billy Sharp and Stefan Scougall wasted excellent chances to win the game.

Oldham Athletic manager David Dunn told BBC Radio Manchester:

"It looked like we had a bit of hunger in us today - all over the pitch, it looked like we wanted to win the game.

"Even when we were down to 10 men, I was still very happy with the way they stuck together, the way they kept their discipline and stuck to the game plan.

"I don't want to be critical, but I think the referee could have been helped by his assistants. Some of the decisions, both for and against us, I was a little surprise by. But they have a tough job to do and it was a quick game.

"We didn't give him much of an option with the sending off - it was probably a second booking."
