Billy Sharp felt the Blades were good value for a share of the spoils at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Speaking after netting a brace in Norfolk, the skipper remarked: "It was a really enjoyable game. We knew it would be tough, Norwich are a really good side, who are at the top end of the table for a reason.

"I'd have certainly taken a point before the game and having been behind twice, to show the character and belief was great for us and the fans."

On the gamesmanship from Tim Krul before slotting home the first equaliser from the penalty spot, Sharp felt it gave him an unintended edge.

He added: "I'd be the same if I was a goalkeeper, it's part of the game, but it helped me a bit to be honest.

"I don't think Tim (Krul) was focused though, I was and thankfully I managed to put the penalty away.

"I'm enjoying my football, you building rhythm and confidence when you are playing consistently and I'm just trying to score the goals to help us stay at the top of the table."
