Blades hold Red Devils

Published Add your comment

It finished all-square between Sheffield United and Manchester United after an entertaining first leg of the FA Youth Cup final at Bramall Lane ended 2-2.

The Red Devils - looking for a record 10th triumph in the competition - went ahead through a controversial Jesse Lingard goal before Callum McFadzean's spectacular equaliser.

Will Keane restored the away side's advantage in the 70th minute, but Jordan Slew levelled within moments to ensure it will be honours even going into next Monday's second leg at Old Trafford.

A crowd of 29,977 watched the game - the biggest attendance of the season at the stadium - with United senior team boss Sir Alex Ferguson amongst those observing from the stands.
