Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder was happy to take a point after seeing his side show their battling qualities to bounce back from the previous week’s defeat at Swansea.
I think we have lost seven matches by the one goal this season and we didn’t want that to happen again,” he said after his side remained three points behind the second-placed hosts and six adrift of Leeds.
The Canaries got their noses in front after just 11 minutes when Onel Hernandez played a neat one-two with Teemu Pukki before slipping the ball between the legs of goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
It was a tough start for the visitors but they rode the storm and were back on level terms on the stroke of half-time, Sharp converting from the spot after Emi Buendia had brought down Enda Stevens as he burst into the area from the left.
Norwich City: Krul, Aarons, Zimmermann, Godfrey, Lewis, Vrancic, Trybull, Emi (Cantwell 88), Stiepermann (Rhodes 88), Hernandez, Pukki.
Sheffield United: Henderson, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Baldock, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens, Dowell (Duffy 60), Sharp (Washington 90), Madine (McGoldrick 60).
