Sheffield United were once again guilty of throwing away a lead after Bradford City came back from 2-0 down to grab a point.

The blades looked to be cruising to their first league win of 2014 when Jamie Murphy and Harry Maguire fired them into a first half lead.

Bradford got a foot back in the game early in the second half when Gary Jones deflected shot left George Long with no chance and they completed the comeback just past the hour when James Hanson scored from close range.

Ryan Flynn came closest to restoring the lead for United when his effort went just over but the blades have now dropped eight points from winning positions in their three games since the turn of the year.
