Chris Wilder was frustrated that his side didn't produce more quality in the final third in Saturday's goalless draw with Nottingham Forest at Bramall Lane.

An entertaining clash, played in artic conditions ended with the spoils shared on an afternoon where two towering goalkeepers both kept deserved clean sheets.

The Blades boss remarked: "We've set the standards high, but we didn't deserve to win the game in what were difficult conditions for both sets of players.

"It was a great crowd and you want to send them home happy, but we didn't show any sort of quality in the final third, we didn't produce a that decisive cross, pass or finish or show that ability to decide the game in our favour.

"Leon should score what is a straightforward chance but we had other opportunities and we've dropped too many points like this, from games where there is nothing in it really."

Wilder added: "The second-half was end-to-end, like a game of basketball, because I wanted us to go and win the game.

"We opened up, but they'd got the likes of Tomlin and other who could open us up and in the end we needed Jamal (Blackman) to make sure we got a point."
