Last-gasp Conor Hourihane goal blunts Blades at Oakwell

Conor Hourihane atoned for a penalty miss by equalising deep into stoppage time to rescue a point for Barnsley from a 1-1 Sky Bet League One draw with Sheffield United at Oakwell.

Matt Done went close for the visitors in only the second minute when his effort was tipped wide by keeper Adam Davies.

Barnsley then enjoyed a decent spell with Adam Hammill curling an effort wide and Marley Watkins heading off-target.

Sam Winnall forced a good save from George Long with Lloyd Isgrove putting the rebound wide.

United's Billy Sharp had a shot saved before Chris Basham struck, the former Blackpool player finding the net in the 16th minute with a header from a Bob Harris corner.

Basham even had a chance to score a second after the break, but he put his effort wide.

Long protected United's lead when he made a fine save to keep out Hourihane's penalty - awarded following Neill Collins' foul on Hammill - on the hour mark.

Winnall went close to equalising late on, heading against a post, before Hourihane levelled with a superb strike at the death.
