Hull City vs Sheffield United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

The live Championship fixture on Friday evening (19:45) is a Yorkshire derby between two sides in different halves of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Hull will be looking to bounce back after a midweek road defeat at Middlesbrough where they went down 3-1. Evandro netted their only goal which came four minutes before half-time but one on the edge of the break and then early in the second-half put the game beyond the Tigers. Sheffield United kept up their promotion push with a 2-1 victory at home to QPR on Tuesday night. Richard Stearman and John Lundstram got the goals in a match that was closely fought. The reverse fixture came early in November and it was the Blades who won that one a comfortable 4-1. Leon Clarke netted all four for United while Kamil Grosicki had put City ahead early on.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair with almost identical odds on offer about either side to win the game. Given this and the fact that the last four Hull home games have been drawn along with of the two last four on the road for Sheffield United then backing the draw looks a sensible approach. Three of the last four at the KC Stadium have ended goalless so it looks worth a small interest that the same thing will happen here.

Hull City Preview

The Tigers continue to struggle with just one victory from their last 11 in the league seeing them just keeping their heads above the bottom three. They sit in 21st above Burton on gaol difference and must take advantage of a run games that sees four of their next five played in front of their own fans. At the KC Stadium, they are unbeaten in their last five though four of these have finished all-square. Three of their last four at their own ground have ended goalless though the eight before that saw both teams find the back of the net. Ten of the last 11 goals scored in Hull league games (from both teams) have come in the first half. In the Championship, only Norwich and Sunderland have been behind at half-time more times than the Humberside outfit.

Three of their last four and eight of their last 11 on the road have seen both teams find the back of the net. Each of their last three Sheffield United league matches and four of their last five have produced a total of exactly three goals. Leon Clarke who scored four goals in the reverse fixture has just one goal in the last 11.
