Blackwell stunned by Treacy strike

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell heaped lavish praise on on-loan Blackburn winger Keith Treacy after his stunning goal earned a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester. The Foxes outplayed their hosts for the first hour in a pulsating match, leading through Matty Fryatt's second-half strike, and they were only pegged back by Treacy's long-range strike. Treacy's 25-yard rocket earned the Blades the point and Blackwell admits he did not know the Irishman had it in him. "What a goal to equalise with. If that was scored anywhere else in the world, you'd just take your hat off," he said. "I didn't know he had a right foot like that. If I'd have know that I'd have played him on the right."
