Blades midfielder Chris Basham's only other goal this season was also in a derby against Doncaster Rovers

Barnsley's Conor Hourihane atoned for an earlier penalty miss with an injury-time equaliser in the League One local derby against Sheffield United.

Chris Basham put the Blades in front on 16 minutes when he headed home Robert Harris' cross from close range.

Barnsley should have levelled when Adam Hammill was brought down by Neill Collins on 59 minutes, only for George Long to save Hourihane's penalty.

But Hourihane then fired in a left-foot shot five minutes into injury time.

After earlier failing from 12 yards, he this time succeeded with a 20-yarder for his third goal in as many games and his sixth of the season.

Lee Johnson's Tykes picked up only their fourth point out of a possible 33 from the last 11 games, while Nigel Adkins' Blades are now without a win in six League One matches.
