Danny Welbeck’s late goal denied Sheffield United a first league win of the campaign

Danny Welbeck rescued a draw for Brighton as 10-man Sheffield United survived relentless pressure to claim only their second point of the season.

Welbeck fired home from close range to cancel out Jayden Bogle’s opener for United, who had John Lundstram sent off in the first half.

The Blades midfielder was initially cautioned for a studs-high challenge on Joel Veltman, but referee Peter Bankes upgraded the yellow card to a straight red after consulting his pitchside monitor.

The hosts had Chris Wilder’s side pinned back inside their own half for the majority of the contest but failed to convert their chances.

Aaron Connolly, Neal Maupay, Leandro Trossard and Alireza Jahanbakhsh all spurned promising opportunities for the Seagulls, who remain precariously placed above the relegation zone.
