Matt Hill further demonstrated his versatility and experience at Walsall on Saturday, when he deputised for the suspended Tony McMahon at right back.
Hill's performance drew praise from manager Danny Wilson and the defender insists that despite a below par first-half showing, United were good value for a point that could be crucial in the final reckoning.
The 32-year-old said: "It was a new position for me and a different challenge. The Gaffer asked me if I had played there before, I hadn't, but as always I will do what is best for the team.
"Walsall adapted to the conditions better than us in the first-half and we won't offer any excuses. It took a half-time rollicking to get us into our stride, thankfully we got an early leveller but we couldn't press on and get that winner.
"This could be a vital point come the end of month, so let's move on to Crawley on Tuesday night now."
Hill concluded by praising the impact the substitutes made at the weekend, which shows the Blades have an element of strength in-depth:
"Chris (Porter) proved a point with his goal and it emphasises that we have players waiting in the wings who can do a job.
"Chris has shown on-loan at Shrewsbury what he is capable of and he has been champing at the bit, as is young Callum (McFadzean)."
