Chris Wilder says neither side did enough to win the Sheffield derby after a 0-0 stalemate at Hillsborough.
Gary Madine’s header from close-range was the closest United came to a winner, but Owls’ keeper Kieren Westwood stood tall to block the effort.
The Blades were let off when Sam Hutchinson broke free of John Egan but shot straight at Dean Henderson from eight-yards.
A point was just about the right result for Wilder who saw his side make it seven unbeaten.
“I didn’t think either side deserved to win,” he said.
“I didn’t think either side showed enough quality with the amount of good players on show.
“I thought it was a real bitty game and it never got going. We’ve had a fantastic header first-half from Gary, possibly should score, and Sam Hutchinson should score for them.
“[They were the] two only real clear openings really. I don’t think anyone’s done enough tonight.
“We knew it was going to be a completely different game with Steve [Bruce] in charge.”
United’s next match sees another them contest another derby with Rotherham United visiting for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
