Troy Deeney scored a clinical equaliser for Birmingham to cancel out Oli McBurnie’s second-half opener and deny leaders Sheffield United a fifth straight win.

Paul Heckingbottom’s Blades were on course for victory when the revitalised McBurnie smashed home a fine strike to open the scoring in the 64th minute.
