A Simon Russell goal direct from a corner kick, rescued a draw for the Blues against Sheffield United. The goal three minutes from time got the Blues back on level terms after last season's loanee CJ Hamilton had put the Blades ahead.
The Blades started the game brightly and within the first minute they had their first shot of the game. From the left side, CJ Hamilton's flicked header found Jamie McDonaugh at the back post to sidefoot comfortably wide. The Blues responded with a couple of corners but could not take advantage.
