Sheffield United were frustrated by Coventry City as they played out a 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane.

The Sky Blues had taken the lead 15 minutes in through Andy Morrell, but Tommy Black's first goal for The Blades earned a share of the points.

Sheffield United had nearly taken an early lead when Chris Morgan's header cannoned off the frame of the goal and away, but it was Coventry that opened the scoring.

A mis-hit shot from Michael Doyle arrived at Morrell and he headed beyond Paddy Kenny to the dismay of the home crowd.

Coventry had the better of the possession after their goal, but Black levelled when he got his head to Michael Tonge's fine cross from the left.

Both sides had chances with Kenny alert to a long range strike from Morrell, and Tonge firing over at the other end.

Andy Gray saw a shot well held by Luke Steele, and put another chance wide when well placed.

Paul Shaw also brought a fine save from Steele, but Patrick Suffo nearly stole the points for Coventry when his late header brought a good stop from Kenny.
