Match Preview

Nosworthy missing for Blades Sheffield United manager Micky Adams will be without defender Nyron Nosworthy for his first home game in charge against derby rivals Doncaster. Nosworthy has been ruled out with an ankle injury while Adams could be forced to make several more changes following the 4-2 defeat at Burnley as goalkeeper Richard Wright (thigh), defenders Jean Calve and Matt Lowton and midfielder Leon Britton (all groin) are struggling. Steve Simonsen, dropped for Adams' first game in charge at Turf Moor, will return in goal if Wright fails to make it. Midfielder Nick Montgomery and defender Kyle Bartley are available again following suspension and likely to go straight into Adams' starting line-up, while striker Daniel Bogdanovic is pushing for a return. The Blades have lost their last three league games - they have won one of their last six - and lie two points above the relegation zone. Doncaster could be without defender Shelton Martis and skipper Brian Stock. Martis was substituted in the 17th minute of Rovers' New Year's Day win over Scunthorpe due to injury and midfielder Stock, who has only recently returned to the side due to an ongoing back problem, was forced off in the second half. Adam Lockwood replaced Martis and Dean Shiels was sent on for Stock and both could could start although Simon Gillett, who returned to the bench on Saturday following a knee injury which had kept him out since mid-October, provides manager Sean O'Driscoll with another midfield option. Defender Sam Hird was sent off against Scunthorpe and sits out a one-game ban while midfielder Martin Woods continues to struggle with a groin injury.

Match Report

Kozluk snatches Blades a point Rob Kozluk struck in the sixth minute of stoppage time to salvage a point from a 2-2 draw for Sheffield United after Billy Sharp's second-half double had threatened to hand 10-man Doncaster victory. When Rovers defender Dennis Souza received his second yellow card in the 58th minute, the stage was set for United to emerge victorious on Micky Adams' home bow at Bramall Lane. The boyhood Blades supporter, 49, was last week handed a two-and-a-half year deal as successor to Gary Speed. Yet Sharp, another lifelong United fan, who failed to sparkle during his own time at Bramall Lane, opened the scoring in the 66th minute and rifled home a second from the penalty spot eight minutes later to put Doncaster 2-0 up. Substitute Daniel Bogdanovic's close-range volley offered United hope in the 86th minute and Kozluk's late volleyed equaliser averted a fourth straight defeat. While United were more physical than Rovers, the visitors knitted together some neat moves throughout. United's first meaningful attack almost paid dividends in the 10th minute when Kozluk's lofted pass allowed Ched Evans to break down the left channel. The former Manchester City striker showed neat footwork to cut inside and drag a low right-foot shot wide of Neil Sullivan's near post. John Oster then curled a teasing 25-yard free-kick narrowly over Steve Simonsen's crossbar and a vicious whipped cross from Rovers full-back James O'Connor caused panic in the home rearguard before the danger was cleared. With Adams barking out orders on the sidelines, United looked to break on the counter-attack in the 17th minute through Mark Yeates. As the winger sought to break clear from halfway, he was cynically bodychecked by Souza, who earned himself a yellow card. Sharp rifled home from close range in the 40th minute from free-kick but was standing in an offside position and the strike was rightly disallowed. Sousa then committed another rash challenge on Evans in the 58th minute and his second booking left Rovers with a numerical disadvantage. Yet Doncaster made light of the centre-back's absence by opening the scoring eight minutes later. The impressive James Coppinger crossed low from the left flank and Sharp steadied himself before drilling a right-footed shot into the corner. This time there was no stopping his celebrations and it got even better for the visitors with 24 minutes remaining when Kozluk clumsily shoved Coppinger in the back and Sharp stepped up to fire home low to Steve Simonsen's right. Bogdanovic fired home from 10 yards late on and there was drama still to come as Kozluk made amends for conceding the penalty by volleying home emphatically from 12 yards.
