FT: Sheffield United 0 Blues 0

Blues were left frustrated at Bramall Lane this evening.

#BluesLIVE

90 - The fourth official has indicated that there will be a minimum of four minutes of added on time.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

88 - Chance! Mahoney works the ball out wide to Jota and carries on his run into the area, he gets played in after a neat one-two and only has the 'keeper to beat but Henderson manages to get a hand to it to deny the Blues midfielder.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

84 - Close! Jota wins a free-kick for Blues on the edge of the box after his is bundled over, Gary Gardner takes the resulting set-piece and sees his curling effort hit the right-hand post.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

80 - Chance! Jota plays a delightful ball to the back stick which finds Jutkiewicz, he gets a boot to it and cuts it back into the six-yard area but with his back to goal Bogle hooks it over the crossbar from close-range.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

68 - Adams has the ball out by the right byline, he fizzes in a low cross that evades everyone in the box. Any touch on ball in would have caused problems for the hosts' back four.

62 - First change for the hosts.

60 - As we hit the hour mark, there is still nothing between the sides. The tempo has slowed right down and no meaningful chances have been created by either side.

Blues get the second-half started here at Bramall Lane.

HT: Sheffield United 0 Blues 0

Blues came closest to breaking the deadlock after Jutkiewicz's effort strikes the post but the sides go in level at the break.

#BluesLIVE

36 - Close! Jutkiewicz wins the ball in the centre of the park and darts forward, he works his way into shooting space on the edge of the box and sees his effort cannon back off the post!

0-0 #BluesLIVE

33 - Maghoma wins Blues' first corner of the match after he lets fly from the edge of the area, his shot takes a big deflection off a Blades defender and goes behind. Nothing comes of the resulting set-piece.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

29 - Great save! Camp gets a strong hand to Duffy's 30-yard effort and Blues clear their lines. The ball took a slight deflection on the way through to Camp who did well to parry it away from danger.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

25 - Both sides are cancelling each other out as we go past the midway point in the first-half. Still goalless.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

15 - Blues create their first opening, Colin floats the ball into the back-post and Jutkiewicz nods it sideways for Maghoma but his diving header goes wide of the post and out for a goal-kick.

0-0 #BluesLIVE

6 - The hosts win the first corner of the game, Norwood takes the set-piece but Duffy fails to make any connection with his kick and the ball sails over the crossbar.

0-0 #BluesLIVE
