Hibernians preview

Blades set for second Maltese test

The Blades will face the toughest match of the Maltese tour against Hibernians on Wednesday evening.

After cruising to a 6-0 victory over Zejtun Corinthians on Monday night, Danny Wilson's side face one of Malta's most iconic names.

Hibernians are always known for providing robust opposition as United step up preparations for the League One campaign.

Boss Wilson, outlining his priorities for pre-season, said: "Fitness is important but whenever you go out onto the pitch you always need to have some sort of edge.

"You always want to be competitive and that also builds up as the (friendly) programme moves along.

"That way you can ease the players back, get them into the swing of things again, and make sure they are hitting the peak of their powers by the time the first match comes along."

Wednesday's game kicks off at 7.30pm, Maltese time.
