Dawson played well for Wednesday in their goalless draw with United away from home at Bramall Lane in the Steel City Derby.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper made a number of saves during the Championship encounter and also denied David McGoldrick from the penalty in the 15th minute.
Former England international cricketer Michael Vaughan is a well-known Wednesday fan, and he was impressed with the performance of Dawson.

Progressing at Sheffield Wednesday
Dawson is prone to making errors and wrong decisions, but the goalkeeper is only 23 years of age and is still developing.
The performance produced by the youngster against the Blades in the Steel City Derby underlined his quality and his character to turn on the style in a big game.
Dawson is the future of Wednesday, and the Owls fans should get behind him and give him the support he needs at this stage of his career.
