Final Score: Sheffield United 1-1 Millwall
Sheffield United took on Millwall, hoping to swap places with the South London side in the playoffs. Neil Harris’ side were unbeaten in the league since New Year’s Day and are one of the few playoff contenders in good form. Sheffield United, on the other hand, are struggling over the line after starting the season so well.
The first half was a stalemate with both teams having chances to break the deadlock. In the second half, the game came alive when Leon Clarke put United ahead in the 74th minute, only for Millwall to strike back just two minutes later. That is how it stayed until the final whistle, meaning Millwall have extended their unbeaten run to 17 games.

Looked a little shaky at times. Was not able to do too much in an attacking sense.
