Egan earns Sheffield Utd point at Burnley

Sheffield United defender John Egan struck with 10 minutes to go to earn a draw at fellow European hopefuls Burnley.

The defender struck a rising half-volley into the far top corner of the net after a short corner had been swung into the box and flicked on by Billy Sharp.

It was reward for a positive display from the Blades, who pressed forward for much of the second half after James Tarkowski had given the home side the lead with a sliding close-range finish.

Both sides will feel they had the chances to secure what would have been a big three points in their quest to secure a place in the Europa League.

The draw means Sheffield United stay eighth - a position that could be good enough for European qualification - two points ahead of ninth-placed Burnley.
