Sheffield United have kept their Europa League qualification hopes alive, thanks to a late 1-1 draw at Burnley.

It was to be a day for goal scoring defenders at Turf Moor, as James Tarkowski put the hosts in front in the first half, before Blades centre back John Egan volleyed home a late equaliser.

Both sides have chances in a frantic opening quarter, as Oli McBurnie tested Nick Pope, and Sander Berge drew a brilliant reaction stop from Dean Henderson.

United looked the more likely to break the deadlock, with Egan and Oli McBurnie calling Pope into action again before the break.

But with the Clarets keeper doing his best at one end, Tarkowski put Burnley ahead on 43 minutes.

Dwight McNeil’s free kick was helped on by Kevin Long, and Tarkowski got the better of Chris Basham to tap home.

United looked to push hard for an equaliser after the break, but some dogged Burnley defending kept them at arm’s length heading into the final ten minutes.

But just as Sean Dyche’s side looked poised to hold on for a third successive win, Egan popped up at the back post to the Blades to a point.
