League One round-up: Wigan, Blades play to thrilling draw

It was a day of draws in League One as both matches ended with split points.

Wigan Athletic 3, Sheffield United 3

Sheffield United fought back from 3-0 down inside the final quarter of the game to earn a precious point in a thrilling League One clash at Wigan.

The home side had led by two goals at the break, Will Grigg notching the first with a cool finish before Haris Vuckic's clinical header.

It looked like game over for the visitors at the midway point of the second half after Chris McCann skipped his way through the defence to add number three. But the Blades battled back and Matt Done immediately pulled one back after good work from Billy Sharp.

Sharp himself reduced the arrears to just one with 15 minutes to go with a header and the comeback was complete in the 89th minute when Jussi Jaaskelainen made a superb save to deny Sharp, only for Done to fire home the rebound from close range.

Coventry City 1, Walsall 1

Walsall came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at Coventry thanks to an 80th minute equalizer by Tom Bradshaw.

Coventry entered the match as the league's only team without a defeat at home and while that record is still intact, they will be disappointed not to have won the match. Chris Stokes put the Sky Blues ahead in the 35th minute with a good header and the home side were on the front foot for most of the match, but Bradshaw's goal ensured Walsall would get a result.
