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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
