Following Saturday’s draw between promotion hopeful’s Sheffield United and Millwall, fans of both clubs seem to agree that the men between the sticks on the day were worthy of specific praise.
Millwall made the trip to Bramall Lane for the tie where a tight and tense game played itself out and neither Jamal Blackman nor Jordan Archer showed themselves up on the day.

The hosts took the lead through Leon Clarke in the 74th minute, but Millwall were quickly back on level terms as Steve Morison hit the equaliser just two minutes later. The full-time whistle went with the scores tied at 1-1 and whilst both clubs wanted a maximum return to bolster Play-Off hopes this season, each club remains more than in the mix.
Millwall occupy 6th place in the table, with Sheffield United only three points away from us in 9th position.
Even though Sheffield United dominated chances on the day, Millwall certainly had a few chances they’d have hoped to have done better with but fans were clear where the praise should go come the full-time whistle.
Millwall superb again definitely deserve a playoff slot

Even United fans had credit for Archer’s performance across the 90 minutes.
Both keepers the stars yesterday at the Lane …we were unlucky not to kill the game off archer was playing outstandingly. Lucky break gave you a goal we fell asleep. The pressure the Blades put Millwall under just look at this video …utb pic.twitter.com/vsSkudsDNq

That’s football you have to be clinical for 90 minutes, wat a great game. I’m looking at the table it’s so close

Fella like we gave it away with a lapse in concentration – probably a fair result, couple of great save from either keeper

Certainly a tie for the neutral but manager Neil Harris was content enough as he spoke to the BBC after the matchday referee blew his whistle for the final time.
“It’s a really good point, especially having been behind. I would have taken a point before the game because there is so much at stake for both clubs, and for us a point is huge. It keeps our unbeaten run going and the character our players showed in that red-hot atmosphere to come from behind is a good effort from the boys.”
We quietly march on. Sitting in 6th place though we more than have a say in things, Derby could do us a favour given the game in hand they hold or I should say one of their final opponents could as we don’t want it to come down to Aston Villa on the final day of the season as they’ll be looking for one last hurrah having already secured their own Play-Off spot.
