A win for City at Bramall Lane tomorrow night will see them go within three points of second-placed Cardiff City, who face Reading on Monday (December 11th). However that advantage was soon erased when not long after the second half begun, the in-form Leon Clarke fired home an equaliser.
Defender Flint popped up in the box to grab a late victor for the visitors and condemn United to a fourth game without a win.
Southend are determined not to lose Ryan Leonard but Sheffield United are refusing to take no for an answer. When the ball was played back in, Clarke headed over. But they got the advantage when just before the end of the first half Jamie Paterson scored a brilliant goal to put the Robins ahead.
After being played in by Clarke, Sharp's effort hit the top of the crossbar and the striker then saw Fielding produce a superb save, turning his header onto the bar from Fleck's corner.
Duffy hit a post again with a shot and Sharp's follow-up effort struck Nathan Baker in the face.
They were in the ascendancy when John Fleck was shown a straight red by referee David Coote for a two-footed challenge in the 59th minute.
A defensive lapse let in Marlon Pack whose deflected effort was saved by Moore and Taylor's follow-up was blocked by Richard Stearman.
"The game has gone if you can't tackle like that now", Wilder said.
It was the Blades, however, who went on to have the better chances, only to be beaten right at the end when Flint snatched a victor with a far-post finish from Bobby Reid's cross.
"I can't be disappointed with the performance because performance levels were up there with what I expect from the players".
