On a cold, miserable Tuesday night the Blades travelled to Wigan - after 66 minutes the 2,000+ travelling support all wished they hadn't bothered.

Goals from Will Grigg, Haris Vuckic and Chris McCann saw Wigan race to a 3-0 lead.

United then started to play - Matt Done turned home a Billy Sharp cross to notch the first, the comeback had begun. Sharp himself then headed home Jay McEveley's cross leaving 15 minutes to find an equaliser.

Billy Sharp was the main threat throughout and as the clock ticked over into the 90th minute he again turned provider, having his shot palmed away by Wigan keeper Jussi Jääskeläinen - Matt Done was on hand to tap in the leveller.

Comeback complete.
