Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder speaking to BBC Match of the Day about the first caution for Egan: "Steve Bruce is a competitor and I'm a competitor - we wouldn't have backed away from that. That yellow then puts John in a difficult position.
"We then allowed a poor mistake for them to go 1-0 up. We had to then chase and open up, and they punished us.
"People will look at the goals conceded today and will ask how we managed the number of clean sheets this season and to be defensively tight.
"We all need to sharpen up and tighten up. If we don't, it'll be a long five weeks. We've got a huge game on Wednesday night. We just want the overall performance to be better than what it is."
