United were backed by 4,600 travelling fans in south Yorkshire but were joined by two special guests as Kinnear and Orta were pictured in the Leppings Lane end before kick-off.

On the field the pair won't have been disappointed as Marcelo Bielsa's side produced a strong showing and were unlucky to not come away victorious after Mateusz Klich cancelled out a first half wonder goal from Adam Reach.

The Argentine said afterwards that he was 'truly disappointed' to come away with a point from the Yorkshire derby clash after the Whites missed a number of chances: “I’m truly disappointed. I don’t like to judge the performance of the opponent but the fact that we had 25 chances to score talks about what we deserved.

“Normally we need three chances to score a goal. It’s a statistic common to teams who lead their championship. But in the previous game against Birmingham we needed eight chances to score. Tonight we needed 25 chances. When we evaluate a performance we take into consideration the chances we create. Then we see if the team is efficient.”
