Sheffield United’s promotion hopes hit a snag last night as they chucked away a three goal lead to give Aston Villa a share of a spoils.
A Billy Sharp hat-trick had looked to be sending the Blades on their way to a comfortable win against Dean Smith’s men, but a late capitulation saw the game end 3-3 in what was a nightmare last 10 minutes for the away side.
A big contributing factor for the turnaround was the performance of goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
The Man United loanee had been in superb form for the Blades and has become a firm fan favourite, but mistakes for the goals from Mings and then Abraham for Villa exposed some weaknesses in his game, and plenty of Sheffield United fans were quick to have their say on his showing on Twitter.
With that, we’ve taken a look at just what the Blades fans had to say in response to Henderson’s showing…
Henderson has had a shocker there pal, they were never in game.

This result might just ground Henderson to concentrate on his game . He will be hurting

Been a big fan of Dean Henderson but the error at Leeds and now at Villa show that he still has a lot of learning to do. He has to hold his hands up(!) and say that result is on him. #SUFC #TwitterBlades

Henderson has had a shocker today but regardless we shouldn't have not been able to see that out. Disappointing. Games like that which mean you don't get promoted. Oh well. We go again. #sufc
