Jake Eyre scored a late equaliser to earn the Blades a deserved share of the spoils in West Yorkshire.
United had earlier fallen behind on the hour mark after losing possession whilst on the attack and Duane Holmes took full advantage to give the Terriers the lead.
Town started the game brightly and despite a resolute defensive display, the Blades were thankfully to goalkeeper Owen for making a timely intervention as half-time approached.
At the other end Jamie McDonagh and Jake Eyre were lively, although neither had a sight of goal in the first period.
In the second-half somewhat against the run of play, Huddersfield took the lead through HOLMES, but United responded and were full value for a point when McDonagh created a chance which EYRE duly converted from inside the penalty area.
Travis Binnion, in charge of the team in David Unsworth's absence said: "It was a really good team performance, the lads were organised, strong and determined and a draw was the least we deserved for our efforts."
Blades: Owen, Paling (Scarisbrick 71), Ptak, Whiteman (Smith 71), Banton, Pemberton, Khan, Dimaio, Eyre, McDonagh, Coustrain (Heather 54).
