Billy Clarke ensured Bradford City went in level at the break after having earlier fallen behind to a goal from Billy Sharp.
United had gone ahead on 17 minutes courtesy of a clinical headed finish from Sharp after the striker had been picked out by a wonderfully flighted cross from Mark Duffy.
The Blades playmaker also presented Matt Done with a gilt-edged opportunity on the half-hour but Colin Doyle saved the close range effort.
That vital block made up for the earlier mistake by the City goalkeeper that saw him miss Paul Coutts’ corner only for his blushes to be saved by Daniel Lafferty firing wide.
City’s leveller came ten minutes before the interval through Billy Clarke, who tapped in at the back post after the visitors had been unable to deal with a drilled low cross from Matthew Kilgallon.
