Billy Sharp's second half equaliser prevented United slipping to a third successive defeat, after losses against Bolton and Crewe, and Wilder said: "It's a start. It wasn't our best performance so far but we picked ourselves up after their goal, which was a poor one to concede.

"It punctured us as a team after we started well again and it went from positive to negative quickly. But we had a desire to get something from the game and we did. It's a start and we go from there."
