Honours even as Walsall held by BladesSecond half goals from Walsall's Tom Bradshaw and Sheffield United's Jose Baxter meant the two promotion-chasing Sky Bet League One teams had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the Banks's Stadium.Bradshaw knocked in his 10th of the season and first in six games from Romaine Sawyers' cross to give the Saddlers a 51st minute lead.But Baxter swivelled on the edge of the box to whip a low left foot shot inside the near post to level on 66 minutes, and both sides went close to winning in the dying minutes.With Jamal Campbell-Ryce lively on the left wing, Sheffield made a bright start, but Walsall gradually got on top and in the 18th minute Blades keeper George Long made triple saves to keep out shots from Kieron Morris, Bradshaw and Sawyers.Long then flew to his right to deflect a fierce drive from George Evans before Paul Downing headed against the far post and then Milan Lalkovic rattled he bar with a tremendous drive, cutting in from the left.United tried to make an impact but a Baxter shot was blocked then Campbell-Ryce shot weakly following a corner.The Blades thought hey should have a penalty when Che Adams went down in the box in the 58th minute but the referee was not impressed.Baxter drew his side level eight minutes later to earn the visitors a draw
