Di Canio, who threatened to fine his players after their FA Cup defeat by non-league Macclesfield at the weekend, saw Matt Ritchie strike the top of the crossbar as the Robins came closest to breaking the deadlock after half-time.

"We played much better than we did on Saturday so I am pleased," he said, after Town came up against former boss Wilson at the County Ground.

"We deserved to win because we dominated the first half and if we work hard like this every week we can do well in the future.

"A point is acceptable because we have played against a team who fight hard for every win. They are big and physical and play the ball straight.

"Sheffield United remain unbeaten in the league but it says something about how good we can be that we are only six points behind."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
