Hull City vs Sheffield United
English League Championship
Date: Friday, 23rd February 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Hull City are still in the survival battle without any clear idea how to improve. The team changed managers, tactics and formation and still fails to impress. The Tigers suffered yet another disappointment last round this time against Middlesbrough at Riverside. The team managed to equalize after getting behind in the first half but two more goals for Boro and Hull had to go home empty handed. The full time result of 3-1 was probably fair for both sides’ performances. This leaves Hull in quite undesired position.
Sheffield United are on the opposite side both on the table and their last games. The team continues its battle for top 6 finish. They are currently close to Bristol and will be looking for any potential slip ups.
The Blades were made to fight for the points in the midweek fixture. They hosted QPR but the game was not easy. Sheffield took a 2-0 lead but QPR managed to get one back in the middle of the second half. The visitors had a few more chances but in the end United took all the points.

Hull vs Sheffield United: Predictions
Hull needs any points they can salvage. The team improved a bit at home but still the bigger sides are taking points here. Sheffield are not the best hosts but in recent weeks they earned some good results apart from Wolves defeat. The Blades should have a little advantage in this lively encounter.
