Harry Maguire acknowledged Friday's draw with Crawley Town was a fair result after United's spirited second-half display at Bramall Lane.

Speaking after the 1-1 stalemate with Richie Barker's Red Devils, the centre-half said: "The point is a start after six defeats, but we weren't good enough in the first-half and we certainly had a frank discussion at the break.

"There were some strong words said in the dressing and everyone was honest and open. We had to be because we needed a positive response.

"Thankfully we ended the losing sequence and it was probably a fair result in the end. We dominated the second-half but after conceding another sloppy goal from a set-piece we had a mountain to climb."

Maguire added: "When you play for Sheffield United you are always under pressure because there is always going to be a demand for success and rightly so.

"Ultimately it is down to the players to respond positively and Tuesday night offers us another chance to get a morale-boosting victory."
