Match Previews

Nothing will be given to us, warns boss

21 April 2019

Chris Wilder has warned nothing will be given to the Blades in the coming weeks, as United continue to chase automatic promotion.

Speaking ahead of the Easter Monday fixture at the KCOM Stadium, Wilder is adamant all three teams United will face between now and the end of the season will be out to beat his side.

He remarked: "It'll be another tough game. People will look at our fixtures and say 'win, win, win', but Hull City have had a fantastic run in recent weeks.

"There is the added spice of facing a former manager, it'll will come into it, but Nigel (Adkins) and his players will want to win the game regardless and that's how it is.

"People would be naïve to think some teams have nothing to play for at this stage, these careers haven't just been given, these players have had to work hard to work there way up to play at this level and in the Premier League."

Wilder added: "These players will have personal pride, just the ones did at Birmingham City who beat Leeds, the Millwall players that don't want to drop out of the Championship and were unfortunate not to beat Leeds.

"Nothing will be given us, it hasn't been all season, it was against Forest and it won't be in the next three games."

Hull 0-3 Blades - report

22 April 2019

Sponsored by

The Blades ended the Easter weekend with a second victory after an emphatic performance across Yorkshire at Hull.

David McGoldrick netted two early goals to take his tally for the season to 15 and Enda Stevens was also on target before the break.

Boss Wilder made two changes for the fixture. Egan and Hogan returned, whilst Stearman and Madine dropped to the bench, where they were joined by Basham. A lively start saw the sold-out away section is in full voice

The first penalty box action saw Henderson push away a free-kick from Grosicki from an acute angle but the Blades were soon in the ascendency. On 10 minutes, a Fleck corner from the right saw McGOLDRICK lose his marker to head past former United goalkeeper, Long.

McGoldrick was involved in winning the ball back which saw Hogan almost get on the end of a cross by Stevens, who, moments later was on defensive duty, blocking an acrobatic Pugh effort following Grosicki's deep cross.

The Blades, though, were moments away from doubling the lead and it was a special effort. McGOLDRICK wrestled for possession 25-yards out and let fly with a curling shot that flew past Long and into the Hull net.

Hull hit back with a spell of pressure which included a number of Grosicki corners, but the visitors defended well and continued to look a threat at the other end of the pitch - Stevens, with a right-footer, and Hogan, had efforts blocked.

A third Blades goal before the break, though, was forthcoming. On 42 minutes a deep cross from Baldock saw fellow wing-back STEVENS attack the ball with intent and his header was too powerfl for Long.

The first chance of the second half came from a long Hull throw but Pugh was unable to find the target at the back post and United's best chance of the early period after the break was Baldock's cross evading everyone.

Basham was introduced on the hour and United continued to keep Hull at arms' length. McGoldrick continued to be a threat and fired over from 25 yards, whilst the power of Madine was added to United's armoury.

Chances were somewhat limited in the second half, which was pleasing for the Blades. Toral curled an effort over and following a break, Bowen's shot from Dicko's cross was straight at Henderson.

Long denied United a fourth on 80 minutes, saving with his legs from Fleck after the Scotsman linked up with McGoldrick, but the Blades looked comfortable. Hull's final chance saw Toral's shot hit Irvine to sum up their day as United left east Yorkshire with three more points.

Hull: Long, Lichaj, Wijs, Pugh (Toral 68), Grosicki, Irvine, Kane, Batty, Bowen, Campbell (Dicko 68), McKenzie.
Unused: Marshall, Stewart, Evandro, Martin, Ridgewell.

Blades: Henderson, Baldock, Stevens, Fleck, O'Connell, Hogan (Madine 71), Egan, Norwood, McGoldrick (Washington 89), Duffy (Basham 60), Cranie.
Unused: Lundstram, Dowell, Stearman, Moore.
