Sheffield United held by 10-man Oldham

Sheffield United had to settle for a point as they drew 1-1 at 10-man Oldham.
The Blades carved out several second-half chances, but they were badly let down by their finishing.
Oldham went in front on 10 minutes when a Mike Jones corner flicked off United's Jose Baxter, giving Danny Philliskirk the chance to convert a close-range header at the back post.
Carl Winchester almost doubled the lead, but United equalised on the half-hour when Stefan Scougall set up Matt Done for an excellent 18-yard shot into the top corner.
Visiting keeper Mark Howard was forced into two smart saves after being tested by Dominic Poleon but the Blades' threat increased after half-time and Done wasted a golden chance when he fired wide after running clean through.
The home side went down to 10 men in the 62nd minute, with Jonathan Burn receiving his second yellow card for a foul on Billy Sharp.
Sharp then missed a sitter from inside the six-yard box before Scougall hit the post when he should have scored.
