Every word of Steve Bruces classy press conference on Leeds United, promotion, Bielsa and being abused

Sorry, were having problems with our video player at the moment, but are working to fix it as soon as we can

John Egan was sent off for a handball on the line and while Ben Marshall missed the resulting penalty, Millwall found an equaliser through Jake Coopers diving header deep into stoppage time.

And Harris said: “Im delighted with a point and I think we deserved it. Huge credit to Sheffield United and Chris Wilder for where they are at the moment.

“Its the first time I played a back five as a manager and I did so to combat how good Sheffield United are. We wanted to try and stay in the game for as long as possible to fight their strengths.

“The Easter weekend is usually the weekend that tells you who’s going to go up, who’s going to stay in the division and who’s going to be in the playoffs. “We are in a great position going into the next home game against Wigan. "You are looking at this as an opportunity to pick three points up again. “And that’s what it is all about, winning your home games.” Leeds also have two away games left, with Brentford and already relegated Ipswich Town set to welcome them before the end of the season.  

Massive blow – These Sheffield United fans are devastated at loss of key man

“Whatever you do its difficult to stop them. I was disappointed with the goal that we conceded but delighted with the character and belief we showed to get back into the game.

“I thought the penalty would be a turning point. We missed it, but we were in the ascendancy. I cant fault the players, they were outstanding today. To come to Bramall Lane at this stage of the season and come from behind is a great effort.

Follow @insidefutbol Leeds United legend Eddie Gray believes the Easter weekend could go on to decide the fate of the Championship this season. A 1-0 win for Leeds against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, coupled with Millwall taking a point at Sheffield United, means the Whites are now second in the league table and three points clear of the Blades.

Easter Weekend Is Now Key – Leeds United Legend

“What we might lack as a club we wont be let down by desire or spirit within the group. The boys didnt stop and thats the great thing. We kept going until the end, we always think there will be another chance.

The Whites have two home games left in the season and Gray feels winning the two fixtures must be of paramount importance for the team. The Leeds legend said on LUTV: “We are in a great position going into Easter.  

Sheffield United: The performance was poor but its implications could be even worse

“Its just another point gained from us. We have a game in hand which will be vital for us, but any point earned at this stage of the season is hard earned whether youre at the top or the bottom of the league.”

Although Chris Wilder acknowledged afterwards that United had yet to ascertain the exact level of damage the duo suffered before Jake Coopers added-time equaliser cancelled-out Gary Madines opener for the hosts, it seems unlikely either will be available for Good Fridays visit of Nottingham Forest. With John Egan already ruled-out of that match through suspension – the centre-half was dismissed during the closing stages for deliberate handball on the line – Wilders squad faces the greatest test of its strength and depth at a critical moment in the race for automatic promotion.

LEEDS fans have brutally trolled Sheffield United after the Championship promotion race took yet another twist yesterday.

Although it was a witless question, given not only the circumstances but also the result, Wilders acerbic response betrayed the potential implications of entering the meeting with Forest and next weeks derby at Hull City without Basham and Sharp. Indeed, if grade two or three tears are diagnosed, they could even miss the play-offs if United fail to claw back the three points gap now separating them from second-placed Leeds.

The two Yorkshire rivals are battling it out to finish second in the league and have regularly been swapping places in recent weeks.

“You take what is given at this stage of the season, but for a referee to miss that, right in front of him, well. Im not blaming the performance on him but on 94 minutes, Im backing him to get that right,” he added. “Theres quite a bit to play for at this level of the Championship isnt there.

The Blades looked to have the upperhand when they won at Elland Road last month, before capitalising on Leeds’ defeat to Birmingham.

But Millwall’s Jake Cooper netted a 95th minute equaliser to stun Sheffield United yesterday, leaving them three points behind Leeds, who beat Sheffield Wednesday.

Match Analysis: Going back to basics offers Sheffield Uniteds best hope of salvaging their automatic promotion hopes after Millwall draw

Leeds are now in pole position to win promotion alongside Norwich, leaving Chris Wilder’s side to battle it out in the playoffs.

Bielsa was forced to pull Cooper out of the team and hand Gaetano Berardi a start in defence, with the Italian featuring for all 90 minutes of Leeds' 1-0 win over the Owls. Cooper has been a key man for Leeds this season and there have been fears over his absence at a crucial time in the campaign.

Eyebrows were raised when Wilder was named Championship manager of the year and the decision will be questioned further should the Blades fail to win promotion.

Following the game, Sheffield United’s official Twitter account posted confirmation of the result against Millwall.

But Bielsa does not feel that the injury picked up by the centre-back is serious. He told his post-match press conference: "We don’t think so [that it is serious] because he felt like a muscle strain.  

Sheffield United’s tweet was met with countless memes mocking them, many of which featured Marcelo Bielsa.

This Thomas Christiansen signing is surely one of Leeds biggest waste of time signings

Sheffield United will be hoping to make amends on Friday when they welcome Nottingham Forest to Bramall Lane.

LEEDS fans were left baffled at Ezgjan Alioski as he had a strange reaction to Pontus Janssons celebration.
