Tony Mowbray's side headed to South Yorkshire while sitting 18th in the Championship table, three places above the Blades who were down in the bottom three. 

An unlikely scorer in Matthew Bates gave Boro the lead in the first 20 minutes but the home side were back in it 10 minutes later when Matthew Lowton headed home from close range.

Then in the dying embers of the game, Julio Arca fed Marvin Emnes in on goal and the Dutchman finished with aplomb.
