Sheffield United player ratings serve up a mixture of good and bad as defender leads the way

Sheffield United took their first away point of the season at Brighton and Hove Albion.

It was a curious display with the Blades unable to lay a glove on their opponents for the first hour, but once the Seagulls had a man sent off, they recognised their opportunity and took advantage.

Wes Foderingham – an important tip-over from Billy Gilmour as the Blades kept the damage down in the first half 6

George Baldock – had plenty of work on his hands, even more so once Kaoru Mitoma came on 5

Auston Trusty – able to push forward after the red card, he played an important part in the equaliser 6

Jack Robinson – a really good performance from the under-rated defender which allowed others to pile forward after the red card 8

Jayden Bogle – his man scored the opener, but was his cross put in by Adam Webster for the equaliser 6

Vinicius Souza – had a difficult first half even before taking the knee in the back which ended his afternoon 5
