Labadie: Equaliser for Tranmere

Nick Montgomery hit a superb first-half goal as Sheffield United dropped their first points in a 1-1 draw at Tranmere on Saturday.

Rovers made the brighter start in the League One clash at Prenton Park but were denied through three smart saves by Steve Simonsen from Martin Devaney, Mark McCrystal and Lucas Akins.

United gradually warmed to their task and Rovers had keeper Owain Fon Williams to thank for excellent stops from close-range headers by Matt Lowton and Jordan Slew.

The deadlock was broken a minute before the break when Blades skipper Montgomery hit the back of the net with a cracker from 30 yards.

A header by Rovers substitute Mustafa Tiryaki was well held by Simonsen, but they eventually levelled in the 80th minute.

Joss Labadie made an immediate impact as a substitute when heading in David Buchanan's cross.
