Sheffield United hit back late to claim draw at Burnley


Sheffield United's unlikely hopes of qualifying for the European Champions League have been further reduced after a 1-1 draw at Burnley in the English Premier League.

John Egan earned United a point with an 80th-minute equaliser at a virtually empty Turf Moor on Sunday that left Chris Wilder's side seven points behind Manchester United in fifth place, which could be enough to get into next season's Champions League.

More realistic for the Blades is a place in the Europa League and the team are only a point adrift of seventh-place Arsenal with five games remaining.

James Tarkowski gave Burnley the lead in the 43rd minute, sidefooting home from close range.

Burnley are two points behind Sheffield United in ninth.

Sheffield United have only won one of their four games since the restart of the league.
