Sheffield United 0-0 Bournemouth: Promotion candidates draw at Bramall Lane

Morgan Gibbs-White is on loan at Sheffield United from Premier League side Wolves

Sheffield United and Bournemouth had to settle for a share of the points as a hugely competitive encounter between the promotion candidates ended goalless.

The Blades were the better side in the first half and came close to scoring when Cherries captain Lloyd Kelly’s clearance hit his own bar before keeper Mark Travers brilliantly foiled Morgan Gibbs-White.

Travers again needed to be at his best, rushing out to deny Gibbs-White as he raced clean through with 20 minutes to go.

Wolves loanee Gibbs-White was also denied a penalty late on after appearing to be caught by Nathaniel Phillips before Filip Uremovic missed a late sitter to win it.

Given their comfortable cushion in the second automatic promotion place, Bournemouth will be much the happier with the draw, while the Blades – in fifth before the 15:00 BST kick-offs – will look back on two potentially pivotal points that slipped away.
