United's U18s made it four games unbeaten with a deserved point away at Huddersfield on Saturday.

Oliver Greaves netted a hat-trick, including a last-gasp equaliser, which saw the Blades earn a share of the spoils in a six-goal thriller in West Yorkshire.

United took the lead in the 25th minute, as GREAVES cut inside his marker and fired home following a switch of play. Seven minutes later, Town should have restored parity from the penalty spot after Gordon was penalised for handball, but Warhurst saved well down to his left.

In the 36th minute though, the Terriers did level as a cross to the back post was tapped home. In response, the Blades regained the lead before the break. Slater's through ball saw GREAVES through on goal and he lobbed the advancing goal goalkeeper, showing excellent composure.

On the hour parity was restored for a second time as some neat build-up play led to a shot being fired home, giving Warhurst little chance. And within 10 minutes, Town went ahead for the first time with another low strike into the bottom corner.

United threw caution to the wind in search of an equaliser and it came right at the death. A ball into the box from Hawkes wasn't dealt with and that man GREAVES latched on to it to seal his hat-trick and more important rescue a point for Derek Geary's side.

Blades: Warhurst, Belehouan, Foulstone, Hawkes, Cantrill, Gordon, Broadbent (Cappello 81), Slater, Lawrence (McClellen 78), Greaves, Potts (Ompreon 67).
Unused: Dewhurst.
