It was another decent afternoon on the road for Sheffield United on Saturday, as they held on for a 0-0 draw against Watford at Vicarage Road.
Is Chris Wilder too harsh on his teams sometimes?
The result means that Chris Wilder’s side remain unbeaten away from home in the Premier League this season. Indeed they have now drawn against AFC Bournemouth, Chelsea and Watford on their travels, whilst also picking up three points against Everton.
In truth they could have lost against the Hornets, were it not for a fine display from their goalkeeper Dean Henderson. The Manchester United loanee bounced back from his mistake against Liverpool the week before with a couple of excellent saves at Vicarage Road.
His first came just after half-time when Danny Welbeck turned his defender on the halfway line and raced through on goal. Henderson stood his ground in the one-on-one, making himself big and saving with his right leg to keep the scores level.
Then in the 93rd minute, the Hornets swung a free-kick into the box and Craig Dawson found himself free. He headed towards goal from around eight yards out but the 22-year-old remained alert and palmed the ball away to secure a point.
Sheffield United supporters on social media were delighted to see Henderson back at his best following his error against Liverpool.
Many were heaping praise on the youngster following his performance at Watford, suggesting that he had gained the point back that he had perhaps lost his side the week prior.
Here is what a few Blades fans had to say…
Saved us a point today.

Great performance Deano. It happens to every single keeper, from Shilton to seaman, from Huiguita to Buffon. That was a match saving performance. UTB 👊
