Judge: Spared his side the blushes

Judge: Spared his side the blushes

An Alan Judge header gave 10-man Notts County a point as they held Sheffield United 1-1 at a frozen Meadow Lane.

An army of volunteers worked through the morning to clear snow from the pitch to get the game on but it seemed they would regret that decision after a sluggish start by the hosts.

The Blades opened the scoring after just over a minute when Nick Blackman's inswinging corner was headed home by a towering Harry Maguire.

Jeff Hughes had a good chance to level for County on 11 minutes after poor defending from the Blades but he scooped his shot over.

The home side had a mountain to climb after 24 minutes when Francois Zoko was sent off, first receiving a booking from referee Mark Haywood for protesting a free-kick before seeing red as he continued his outburst.

However the away side never really pressed home their advantage and after 80 minutes Judge glanced home an Alan Sheehan free-kick to give the Magpies a point.
