Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder told BBC Sport: "They are a decent team, a high energy, high tempo side and I thought we matched that. It's all about creating chances and putting them in the back of the net. We did the first bit but couldn't do the second bit.
"It's not going our way at the moment but it is a time to stand up stick your chest out and show what you are about in a lot of ways. Bravery in and out of possession, brave as a team. We have enough characters in there. It was a really tight game and the players will be thinking it's one that has got away."
Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa said: "I have already experienced a Yorkshire derby in the Championship but it is different in the Premier League. When there are no fans it is hard to compare. The games are very competitive and it is hard to impose yourself. The difference between the two teams was not a lot."
On suggestions Patrick Bamford might struggle in the Premier League, he added: "There are a lot of people who thought contrary to what you say. The league season is very long. Hopefully he can continue to show his obvious qualities."
