Live Reporting

All times stated are UK

  1. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Too early to say if Watford have started their 2019-20 version of "The Great Escape"? Probably, but at least now they have hope where a month ago they had almost none.

    I'm off to see how McQueen, Garner, Coburn et al did it, but take a look at the match report if you like.

    Thanks for looking in.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    It's all over and Watford are off the foot of the table after a gutsy draw!

  3. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Will Hughes' free kick from the right drifts over the area and goes out behind the United goal.

  4. INJURY TIME

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Four minutes to come, and Watford will look to run down the clock for a valuable point.

  5. YELLOW CARD

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Nathaniel Chalobah strolls off and is booking for taking his time, with Craig Dawson replacing him.

  6. CLOSE!

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Chris Basham slides in at the far post and cannot connect, and then Adrian Mariappa gets his head to the ball from John Egan's header in the area!

    United piling on the pressure!

  7. CLOSE!

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Gerard Deulofeu clips it goalward from the edge of the 'D', and the ball drifts inches past the post with Dean Henderson static!

  8. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Watford have a chance with a free kick, given away by Jack O'Connell, on the edge of the United box...

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Andre Gray replaces Troy Deeney for Watford.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    An irritated Gerard Deulofeu talks himself into David Coote's book during a series of United corners.

  11. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Will Hughes swings in a free kick into the area, and it bounces off Craig Cathcart in an uncontrolled manner to fly behind for a goal kick.

    Chances for Watford in this half have been rarer than sightings of Santa on the day after Christmas...

  12. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    John Lundstram is down for a long period of treatment, but eventually continues, albeit a big gingerly.

  13. GREAT SAVE!

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Mousset is involved straight away, sending in a fine cross from the right that John Fleck stretches to inside the six yard box.

    But Ben Foster, sliding across the face of goal, gets just enough on the ball to deflect the ball past his left-hand post!

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Lys Mousset replaces Oliver McBurnie.

  15. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Troy Deeney is just short of a low cross from Gerard Deulofeu, but he earns Watford's first corner.

    They can make nothing from it, and United make a change to try to break the deadlock...

  16. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    David McGoldrick gets a chance for his first of the season, and he sees his shot from inside the left-hand side of the area hit the base of the post!

    But - the flag is up for offside and it would not have counted.

  17. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Now John Fleck takes aim on Foster's goal, sliding a low, long-range effort that skips past the left-hand post harmlessly.

    United still in control, but nothing to show for it yet.

  18. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Confident stuff from Etienne Capoue - he chests the ball down inside his own area, and Foster runs onto it to snuff the chance out.

  19. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    A deflection falls nicely for John Lundstram on the edge of the Watford box, but he skies his volley over Ben Foster's bar.

  20. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Watford

    Fleck and Jack O'Connell try to combine by the far corner flag, but the final ball is overhit and runs out. But, the Blades are having the better of it so far since we resumed.
