The visitors thought they should have been given a penalty after Patrick Bamford took a tumble in the box in the 76th minute, but the Chelsea loanee was booked for diving.

Robinson felt it was a spot-kick but conceded the Blades were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty in the first half for a handball.

"I don't think anyone could've come off and been disheartened with that," Robinson said. "The frustration lies within that I thought we should've had a penalty in the second half.

"But, if we get that, then it's a little bit unfair on Sheffield United. But you do ask that key decisions are right.

"I thought they should've had a penalty first half and we should definitely have had a penalty in the second half."

Robinson was also left to rue his side's mid-table position after taking eight points off the top two in League One this season.

He added: "I'm pleased today; you've got to accept the draw because it was a fair result.

"We beat Sheffield United at home and we beat Doncaster at home and took a point away from home against the two of them and that's promotion form - that's the frustrating thing about it.

"The best two teams in the league, we've taken eight points in those four games. We should've done better in other games."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
