Morgan to the rescue!

Sheffield United's captain came to the rescue to grab a stoppage-time leveller in front of the Kop against Ipswich Town in a 3:3 draw on Tuesday night. From a neutrals' perspective, the game will have been an exhilarating encounter with the goal feast at Bramall Lane. Ipswich Town hadn't recorded a victory in their previous nine games this season - most recently losing to Newcastle United.

Richard Cresswell made the move from Stoke City to Bramall Lane on a loan deal with a permanent move likely. He featured for around 15 minutes, but the majority of Bramall Lane was disgusted when the minority of the Kop booed the Yorkshireman's entrance onto the field. He is a former Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds player, of course, but the unnecessary boos occurred.

Matt Kilgallon had to be substituted with an injury in the first-half; Davies replaced the centre-back. Stephen Quinn took Keith Treacy's position on the left-wing.

28,000 fans saw Darius Henderson nod the Blades in front, but Ipswich went on a rampant run with Walter's close-range prod. Mark Bunn somehow let the ball creep into his bottom left-hand corner when Grant Leadbitter's scuffed shot trickled in. Gareth McAuley thumped in the Tractor Boys' third after the interval with a powerful header which found the roof of the net, but United's reducing of the deficit begun when David Cotterill made way for Glen Little, who made his home league debut for the Blades incidentally. Darius Henderson impressively directed the ball into the top left-hand corner for his second of the clash, and then the super Chris Morgan was up in the box at the back-post with 92 minutes ticked by to slide in the Blades an emphatic injury-time equaliser with the help of a deflection.

James Harper almost incredibly snatched United maximum points with a volley right at the death but the ball flew just a yard past the post to Richard Wright's relief. Glen Little proved be a massive influence when coming on for David Cotterill just after the hour mark. His spirit and delicious balls into the box inspired the Blades to a point over a sorrowful Ispwich side, so credit to him. The final score from Bramall Lane is, Sheffield United 3:3 Ipswich Town.
